This is my mum's version of chicken Korma. It can be prepared in less than hour. Cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and cardamom seeds enhance the flavour of the oil in which the onions and chicken are cooked, and the sauce is seasoned with ground cumin and coriander.
Made it healthier. You can use plain yoghurt mixed with milk instead of buttermilk to make it a bit healthier! - 21 Sep 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. Removed the cloves, added cocnut milk mixed with yoghurt instead of buttermilk - 12 Jan 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. I decided to cook the dish differently to absorb more flavour. I sauteed according to instruction and cut the chicken into 5cm cubes and added passata to the pan. I also changed a few spices--using curry instead of cumin and cloves. I added cubed potatoes, green peas, carrots and the buttermilk and let that heat through for 20 min. this dish had some kick! The chicken was also very tender and good. I used a little crème fraiche and that mellowed the hot dish perfectly. - 07 Aug 2008
