Indian cooking is not known for being quick and easy. A curry will use many spices and needs plenty of time to develop flavours. This quick chicken korma recipe works well and is a very presentable and tasty curry. To speed things up I use curry powder and pre-cooked roast chicken breast. The accompaniments are optional and should be chosen to suit tastes and time.
To make Dad’s quick chicken korma recipe:
Raita (optional). Take the cucumber and cut in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, grate on a the fine side of a normal grater. Put the cucumber in a sieve over a bowl, add a pinch of salt and mix. Leave to drain for 5 minutes then squeeze the liquid out using your hands. Chop 4 large leaves of mint very finely. Place the cucumber and mint in a bowl with a grinding of pepper and a squeeze of lemon. Add the yoghurt and mix.
