This free Chicken Korma Recipe is bursting with flavours and by far the best I have ever tasted… Korma is a creamy curry made with yoghurt and nuts. Korma is best served with pilaf rice or basmati rice or rotis.


1.5kg free range chicken fillets, cut into bite size cubes
1 Tblsp ginger, peeled and finely grated
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
175ml Greek yoghurt
30ml canola oil

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
2 onions, finely chopped
1 can coconut cream
40g almonds, ground
1 dash lemon juice
1 pinch salt
1 small handful fresh coriander, to garnish

  • Mix the chicken with the ginger, garlic and yoghurt, cover and marinade for about 3-4 hours.
  • Heat the oil in a pan, add the ground coriander, black pepper, turmeric and garam masala and stir-fry for about 1 minute over a low heat.Turn up the heat, add the chilli and onion and stir-fry for 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken and the marinade and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • Add the coconut milk and bring to the boil, stirring regularly.
