Chicken and Mushroom Korma

Many families like to enjoy a curry together, either at home or at their local curry house, and our family is no exception. The kids love a korma, whilst myself and the husband usually like something with a bit more of a kick. Therefore, when I'm cooking a curry at home, I usually make a korma and then add extra spice to ours.

This recipe is really easy to make, and shows that a homemade curry from scratch doesn't have to take as long as you may think. You can also save time when making your next curry by doubling up on the paste and storing it in a jar in the fridge. I like to use coconut milk as it adds a nice flavour, but you can substitute with cream if you like it richer. I also absolutely love mushrooms, and adding them towards the end with the chicken ensures that they stay plump and don't become overcooked. The chicken can be substituted for extra mushrooms or additional vegetables to make a vegetarian version.
