Tasty chicken korma takes 10 minutes to prep – better than your local takeaway

Going out for a curry is a very popular excursion for Britons, as is ordering in. However, a tasty homemade chicken curry is hard to beat.

BBC Good Food has shared a delicious yet simple recipe for chicken korma, where the meat is braised in a relatively mild yogurt sauce and seasoned with aromatic spices.

While some curry recipes can be decadent and complex, taking hours to prepare and cook, this one is the perfect quick mid-week meal.

It takes just 10 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook, so won’t leave you holed up in the kitchen for the whole evening.

The Good Food team gave the five-step recipe an “easy” rating, so it’s a perfect meal for cooking newbies. Alternatively, get the kids involved for some family kitchen fun.

The recipe serves four people, but quantities can be amended depending on party size.

Restaurant-made and takeaway curries often have a lot of calories due to high levels of saturated fat, salt and sugar, however a serving of this recipe racks up just 376 calories.

This chicken curry can be made even healthier: “Want a curry without too many calories? Use fat-free Greek yogurt instead of cream for a healthy chicken korma that will give your local takeaway a run for its money.”
