Just the right amount of spice gives a kick to Claire’s Low-fat Chicken Korma.
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
Pinch of garam masala
Fresh coriander and flaked almonds to garnish
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.
