How to make great mild Chicken Korma - Korma Recipe

Updated on January 4, 2013

Curry is popular all over the world

It is said that Tikka Masala is Britain's favourite dish, mental really! But Indian curries are hugely popular all over the world now. Sadly I have an allergy to black pepper so have developed a sense of taste that can't take anything spicy. I adore the smell of curries but just can't handle the heat. So if your like me, and can't take your heat then this is a perfect recipe for you.

My mum developed this recipe with my tastes in mind. It gives the nice aromatic smell of a good curry and the korma taste without the heat of a normal curry. Its really creamy and just really yummy! Perfect for young children to develop a taste for indian spices too.

      Daisy, this recipe looks interesting - never thought about adding chickpeas but I can see how they would work. I do love a good Korma :o)
