A popular online Food channel, Tasty UK posted a recipe for a one-pot Chicken Korma and sparked outrage on Twitter for all the right reasons. The video recipe on Twitter read, bless their naïve little hearts, “One-Pot Chicken Qorma [heart eyes emoji]”.

The “one-pot chicken korma” video shows the dish being prepared with a chicken stock cube and korma paste. We are truly surprised who thought of adding a generous amount of raisins and spinach to our beloved Qourma. If that wasn’t enough of a nightmare the dish has rice thrown in ala biryani and is served with a garnishing of yogurt and coriander. Disgusting.
Hilarious comments spurred on Twitter as netizens commented on the post.
“What in the name of colonial cuisine blasphemy is this,” wrote a user and we agree.

Keep the disastrous recipe aside, a user questioned how the chicken was left uncooked making a sure cause for food poisoning. “I don’t even care about the ingredients, but why can’t they caramelise the onions and saute the chicken for a bit? Without that happening this dish is best-called food poisoning,” they wrote.
