The Mughlai dynasty with its Persian and Turkish roots had great influence on Indian cuisine and the Korma was known as a special royal dish. My Bhaji Man Chicken Korma is mild-medium in its spiciness and this special recipe includes tomatoes and ground almonds to give the final creamy dish an authentic balance of richness and depth of flavour, traditional Eastern cuisine at its very best.
(If you are allergic to nuts simply leave out the ground almonds)
With the help of Bhaji Man’s curry spice kits, you can now cook and enjoy great tasting homemade curry dishes to amaze your friends and family. It could not be simpler, if you share ‘A passion for great taste’…Let’s Cook At Home!
20 minutes to prepare and 50 minutes to cook
Step-by-step preparation and cooking instructions:
- Cut chicken into 2.5cm sized pieces
- Peel and finely chop the onions
- Peel and crush the garlic
- If using fresh tomatoes, remove the skin and roughly chop
- 50ml hot water
- Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over a medium heat, when hot add the contents of sachet 1 and fry for 2 minutes, gently stirring.
- Add the chopped onions and continue to fry, stirring frequently until golden brown.
- Add the contents of sachet 2, the garlic, chicken pieces and salt. Mix well and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat to low and add the contents of sachet 3, the yoghurt, ground almonds (if using), tomatoes and lemon juice, stir well over a low heat for 5 minutes.
- Add the hot water, bring to a boil then turn down heat and cover with lid slightly ajar and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Check it regularly to ensure it is not drying out, if it is, add a little hot water and cover completely with the lid.
- After 30-40 minutes the dish is ready once the chicken is tender and a thick gravy has been formed (adding more hot water if needed). Taste and adjust the seasoning to suit.
