The name ‘one-pot’ made us think that maybe they are trying to do something different but never in our wildest dreams did we expect this artistic desecration of our beloved qorma.
Here are some of the hilarious reactions to the abomination by tweeps:
Where is the part where you bury this in the ground so no one dies from eating this? https://t.co/JH4Bw78gf3

How the hell did y’all colonize the world for spices and then NOT use them even when cooking OUR OWN FOOD?! https://t.co/lv9KWp7FTG

I don’t even care about the ingredients, but why can’t they caramelize the onions and saute the chicken for a bit? Without that happening this dish is best called “food poisoning”. https://t.co/2HYxF79awU pic.twitter.com/unMojj5gZQ

Chicken Korma is a widespread meat dish in the subcontinent that traces its origin back to the Mughlai cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. The original is made with yogurt and spices to make the curry after which chicken is added to the curry to be cooked.
Over time, innovations have been introduced to the dish but the basic ingredients have remained the same (without raisins and rice).
