The word korma originates from Urdu words - qormā, ḳormā or ḳormah, meaning "braise", and refers to the cooking method used in the dish.

A traditional Mughal dish, it can be traced back to the 16th century and to the Mughal incursions into the region. Kormas were often prepared in the Mughal court kitchens, such as the famous white korma, perhaps garnished with vark ( superfine filigree foil sheet of pure metals, typically silver), said to have been served to Shah Jahan and his guests at the inauguration of the Taj Mahal.
