Chicken Korma

This whole week I have been thinking about chocolate and then hear it has also been curry week. Seriously I can't keep up!

I have eaten a lot of curries in my time and felt like cooking one that I did not discover in my mums kitchen but in an Indian restaurant.


Some say this cuts corners compared to a traditional curry - I disagree. 

 I created a playlist that has many flavours but still keeps an Indian base.

Feeds 2 I tell you.


1 bay leaf
4 cloves
2 garlic cloves crushed.
1 green chilli finely chopped.
200ml natural yoghurt ( 6.76 fl oz)
100g ground almonds (3.53 oz)
1 tsp ground coriander
400g chicken breast cut into chunks. (14.12 oz)
Vegetable oil
100ml water (3.37 fl oz)
1 medium onion
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp chili powder (maybe 1 if you think the  fresh chilli will be enough)


: Mix the ground almonds with the yoghurt and add the chicken, garlic and chilli - refrigerate.
: In a large pot fry 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil with the cloves, ground coriander and bay leaf.
: Add the onion and leave on a low heat until they get soft.
: Take the chicken out the fridge, tip in the pot and add water.
: Let it simmer on a very low heat, add the turmeric and chili powder after 20 minutes.

<Once chicken is done, serve straight away with naan, pitta or rice.

Will take a better picture, I really struggled with this dish. My twitter followers were not impressed!
