The Murghlai dynasty with its Persian and Turkish roots had great influence on Indian cuisines as we know it in this country and korma was a special royal dish. My Bhaji Man Chicken Korma is more flavoursome than the bland take-away version, but is still mild-medium in its spiciness. This special recipe includes tomatoes and ground almonds to give the final creamy dish an authentic balance of richness and depth of flavour.

Step-by-step preparation and cooking instructions:
Step 1: Finely chop the onions plus peel and crush the garlic.
Step 2: Cut chicken into 2.5cm/1 inch sized pieces
Step 3: Chop tomatoes roughly. (If fresh, carefully skin tomatoes by scoring an ‘X’ on base, covering with boiling water for 20 seconds, cool under running cold water tap and peel.)
Step 4: Bring 50ml of water to a simmer
Step 1: Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over a medium heat, empty in the contents of Bhaji Man Sachet 1 and fry for 2 minutes, gently stirring. Add in the chopped onions and continue to fry, stirring frequently, until golden brown.
Step 2: Tip in the contents of Bhaji Man Sachet 2 along with the garlic, chicken pieces and salt. Mix well and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 3: Empty in the contents of Bhaji Man Sachet 3, the yoghurt, ground almonds, tomatoes and lemon juice and stir well over a low heat for 5 minutes. Pour the hot water. Bring to a boil, turn down, 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 more hot water and cover completely with the lid.
Step 4: 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.
