Chicken Korma

Just the right amount of spice gives a kick to Claire’s Low-fat Chicken Korma.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 inch piece root ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 25g flaked almonds
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat margarine
  • 250g chicken fillet, cubed
  • 5 cardamom pods, split
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1/2 cinnamon stick
  • pinch coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 300ml tin low fat coconut milk
  • 100ml water
  • Pinch of garam masala
  • Fresh coriander and flaked almonds to garnish


Method
In a food processor, blend the onions, garlic, ginger and almonds with the water in to a smooth paste.
Melt the margarine in a frying pan and fry the chicken cardamom pods, cloves and cinnamon until the chicken is brown, approximately five minutes.
Add the blended paste, coriander and cumin seeds and cook for a further two to three minutes.
Add the coconut milk and water and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook gently for 40 minutes.
Stir through the garam masala before serving on a bed of steamed rice, garnished with chopped, fresh coriander and flaked almonds.

    Might taste a lot better with none of those low or no fat products with the real stuff instead.
