Chicken Korma with Pilau Rice
Korma is a cherished South Asian dish with Mughlai origins. The word ‘korma‘ (or qorma) means ‘to braise’, or pan-sear. In the Pakistani and North Indian way of preparation, chicken is sautéed in ghee or oil and whole spices before a blend of yogurt and fried onions is added to produce a rich curry. This version is a mild and creamy curry made with British chicken thigh chunks, coconut and Indian spices. This product comes with a separate side of Pilau Rice - ready to reheat in a convenient single portion microwavable pouch (125g). Note we recommend reheating tray and pouch separately.
Our serving suggestion Try serving with a naan bread to mop up all that lovely sauce. If you’re entertaining, Chicken Korma is a real crowd-pleaser. Finish off with roughly chopped fresh coriander and some blanched almonds. Our drinks pairing Chardonnay. Yes, Chardonnay! Good with mild, creamy or buttery curries, especially with chicken.
