Korma dates back to the Mughal Dynasty when it was cooked for the wealthy and enjoyed a prestigious status associated with the royal courts. Well, we think Hari's version is certainly fit for a king!
If you don't like the heavy, sweet, creamy korma chicken curry served in many UK restaurants then forget what you know and try this recipe. It's light, fresh and has a subtle sweetness which comes from cinnamon bark rather than spoonfuls of processed sugar.
There is also no rule book that says a korma has to be mild. Even die-hard chilli lovers will find this dish beautifully balanced and delicious. (But if you like, you can leave out some of the chillies - we won't judge.)
With the curry, we’d recommend rice or roti, or both. You can choose plain basmati or pre-made rotis, or for something a little extra special, why not try out Hari’s recipes for saffron or pea and cumin rice, or even a roti kit to make at home? As with the main dish, we’ll include all the pre-measured ingredients you need to make them along with an easy to follow recipe card.
This recipe just comes in the 4 person version. But never fear if you're cooking for 2 (or 1). It's perfect for keeping the leftovers for the following day. Some think that extra day of the flavours getting to know each other better makes it even tastier!
