Easy Chicken Korma

Link to recipe. You used to cook this when you were little – I think it may have been the first main meal you cooked. I’m sure there are more authentic recipes but this one is easy and works. I found that you don’t need the water in stage 6.

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • green cardamom, lightly crushed (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp tomato purée
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 100 ml coconut milk
  • 5-7 cashew nuts, or almonds (maybe rather more than that!)
  • 1 cm fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • pinch garam masala

Best with basmati rice.
