If you can't take spicy food but love curries or Indian food then you got to try out this simple Chicken Korma, it is a simple chicken dish with a savoury, creamy yogurt sauce. With the lush tender and juicy chicken this is a simple dish to be eaten with rice, naan or any thing in between.
A super quick and simple dish that requires minimal prep and little to no effort. The hardest part about this dish is the slow wait for the chicken to become irresistibly tender and the sauce to become something you would love to spread over everything.
1 Whole Chicken
1 Cup Plain Yogurt
1 White Onion
1ts Garam Masala
1 Bay leaf
1 Star Anise
Start by peeling your white onion and chopping it into quarters.
Blend your onions with a little bit of water till you get a nice smooth paste.
If your chicken isn't chopped into small pieces do attempt to do so or just buy chicken drumsticks/thighs or get your butcher to chop it up for you.
In a large mixing bowl add in your chicken, 1 cup of yogurt, your onion mixture, 1ts of garam masala, 1/2ts of turmeric, 1/2tb of sugar and 1/2tb of salt and mix well. Cover with cling film and let it marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat up a large wok or pot with enough oil to cover the base and heat it up to medium heat. Once hot add in your bay leaf, 5 cardamom pods, and 1 star anise and fry till fragrant.
Add in your chicken mixture and continue to fry for 5 minutes. Add in just enough water to cover the chicken and let it bubble on medium heat for 20-30 minutes till the sauce thickens develops.
Season with salt and sugar to taste, it should be savory with a hint of sweetness.
Serve up and enjoy with a plate of freshly steamed rice or naan bread. Happy Cooking,
