sakeena... this comment is prolly a year too late... but when u add yogurt.... make sure its just yogurt at that stage... then u fry this yogurt and when it looks like masala paste and not white at all is when u add water... then it will not stay white :)

Is the 'saalan' suppose to appear white??... tastes like my mom's chicken but looks NOTHING like chicken korma... BTW this was my first time making chicken korma so i'm sure there was a problem with the proportions... perhaps too much yogurt??? or didn't fry the onions enough....hmmm i'd appreciate some tips:)

Aida you need to use a little bit of common sense. How can you feed 1 chicken to 46 ppl? You really have to have IQ level of -ve ** to think this way.
