Chicken Korma

I have always loved Indian food. But it is messy to cook the traditional way. I have found this Chicken Korma recipe that sounds yummy.... I am going to give it a try tonight for dinner. If you love Indian food, do give it a try today!

Serves: 4
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 21 minutes


1.5kg chicken, cut into 8 pieces and skinned
150g carton natural yogurt
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons turmeric

1 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
5 whole cloves
1 teaspoon salt
5cm piece cinnamon stick
2 teaspoons cornflour
142ml carton single cream
25g unsalted cashew nuts, browned under the gril


1. Place the chicken pieces in a dish. Mix together the yogurt, garlic and turmeric, and pour over the chicken. Cover and leave to marinate overnight in the refrigerator.

3. Stir the ginger, chilli powder and coriander into the onion, and microwave on HIGH for 1 minute.
