For a speedy and hassle-free spicy chicken supper, try Manju Mahli`s take on a korma


1. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan or wok, and add the onion, garlic and chilli and fry for 5 minutes over a medium heat.

2. Add the cardamoms if using.

3. Stir in the turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt and tomato puree.

4. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and add to the pan. Fry over a low heat for 5 minutes.

5. Pour in the coconut milk and add the ground nuts.

6. Stir in 200ml of hot water and simmer for 7-8 minutes, until the chicken is just tender.

7. Add the ginger and sprinkle over the garam masala. Serve with naan bread or basmati rice and a crisp green salad.

Easy and delicious, Ive subtracted a star because the amount of water recommened is too much, I'd say use about 100ml or less.

Just made this in super-quick time. Am doing it for a party so made it for about 30 people. Wow, it tastes fantastic. Highly recommend!!

A really tasty meal and easy to make, although I only used 150ml of hot water as this leaves the sauce a bit thicker. Also I added 1 level tbl spoon of dessicated coconut to add to the flavour. 2 small naans and basmati rice and youv'e got as good as any takeaway.

Correction to my last comment (wasn't thinking when I was writing)... the texture was spot on but I didn't add water, I used a whole tin (400ml) of coconut milk. This made it really nice & creamy (and not as healthy, but well worth it!!)

This recipe was so easy & the korma was beautiful - both flavour & texture were spot on. I'll be cooking it again in the very near future!

Made this recipe exactly and it was really good. Didn't have any problems with the sauce, but I did cook it for a little longer as I was waiting for my rice to finish cooking!! Will definitely do it again.

Great taste, will make again but with half the water.

I just made this, was very nice although the recipe tells you to use too much water. I made it to the exact measurements but the sauce was very very watery.

I made this last week and it is better than any Chicken korma I have had from a takeaway or restaurant and very easy to make.
