Preparation guide

  • Marinate the chicken for at least two hours or overnight.
    Heat a pan over medium-high and cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side.
  • Set aside the chicken onto a cutting board and cover with foil, while you make the sauce.
  • To make the korma, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet.
  • Add onions and ¼ cup water and saute.
  • Stir in the ground almonds and garlic. Cook for a while, remove from heat and cool.
  • Make a puree of the cooled onion-almond mixture with yoghurt until smooth.
  • In the same pan, heat remaining olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the spices and powders.
  • Now add the tomatoes, coconut milk, red chilly powder, ginger, and brown sugar and stir well.
  • Cut the cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces and add.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Now add in the almond-curd pureed mixture and remove from heat. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
