Bhopali Mutton Korma is a very old recipe since the 15th century. This recipe belongs to Mughal cuisine. When Mughals ruled in India their cuisine spread and mixed with indian cuisine. Mughals came to India from Afganistan, so their food culture also belongs to Afghanistan. Because of this, you can see Afgan food cuisine influence in Mughal cuisines. And even in this recipe also you can see a good impact of Mughal cuisine.
Though the recipe is very old still you can find this recipe in renowned Mughal food resturants in India. Even in Bhopal, some family have their own traditional Bhopali korma recipe which they are passing from one to another generation to keep the recipe alive.
Bhopal is a city in India and it’s the capital of a state of India named Madhya Pradesh. This city has lots of lakes. For this, the city is known as ‘THE CITY OF LAKE’. Bhopal is a multi-culture and community city. Here many communities from the different part of India live for a long time. And this multi-culture influence you can also see in their food culture. Among all the Muslim community living here from last few centuries, so the influence of Muslim culture and cuisine is more than anything you can find here.

What kind of meat you can use to make this Bhopali mutton korma?
As I told in the story that this recipe belongs to Mughals and the Mughal kings (sultan) were fond of good quality meat like beef or lamb. So the dish should be cooked with beef or lamb meat only. However, though the dish cooked with beef or lamb meat in the past, nowadays some are coking the same dish with chicken using the same ingredients. They are not changing the meat choice because they want to have it!! actually, they are forced to change their meat choice because of the high price of beef and lamb mutton meat. But one thing you can not do with this recipe that you can’t use pork meat because Muslims never eat pork and they never cook the dish with this meat. Because of this reason, it is difficult to say what would be the taste if you cook the dish with pork meat. I guess it will not taste good. Because the spices used in the recipe never goes well with the pork meat.
