Chicken Korma originates from India and this creamy dish is made from a luxurious spice mix for a mild spicy creaminess that everyone loves. Korma has been said to have been around since the 16th century and prepared for large feasts at the most prestigious dwellings including the Taj Mahal.

Korma covers a range of dishes, but Curry Traders favourite is Chicken Korma. Our Chicken Korma spice mix makes dinner an easy task and always tastes delicious by using 100% natural local and imported spices and ingredients. The Curry Traders Chicken Korma spice mix features traditional Indian spices including: coriander, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, fenugreek, bay leaves, cloves, pepper, chilli, and cardamom. These spices are balanced with the addition of ground cashews to take a bite out of the spice they offer. Even more, in our in-house recipe we recommend adding cream to create a rich sauce to marinate your chicken and veggies in for a mouth-watering dish to have everyone lining up for seconds.

Turmeric and Cardamom are two backbone spices used to create any curry. Turmeric helps to create a yellow curry colour in addition to providing numerous health benefits. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years in medicine for its bioactive properties that has anti-inflammatory effects and is an antioxidant. There have been many well-published studies to prove turmeric has health benefits that can improve the brain's function, lower the risk of brain and heart diseases, as well as having potential to prevent cancer. Turmeric is a superfood we want to help add to your diet and give your chicken korma a delicious taste and colour to enjoy. In addition, you'll find cardamom in this spice mixture to help deliver an intriguing aroma that will make you excited to try the creamy goodness that is Chicken Korma.

Preparing Chicken Korma is a simple task that takes around an hour for preparation and cooking time. Chicken Korma is an excellent dish to make for Sunday night dinner, a dinner party or to make ahead of time and eat throughout the week. Chicken Korma uses chicken as its main protein source and pairs wonderfully with basmati rice. We recommend using chicken thigh with our chicken korma recipe, but chicken breast works just as well. This is a traditional pairing to let the classic korma spices stand out as this comfort food is one to enjoy to the fullest. We also recommend pairing our Chicken Korma with papadums and lime pickles to fully appreciate the taste and flavours this meal delivers.

If you're looking to add some vegetables to this dish, we recommend adding veggies that will soak up the creamy korma and complement the flavours. Try adding sweet potato, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, zucchini or red pepper as some of our favorites to pair with curry. If you're preparing our Chicken Korma for a dinner party, pairing this curry with wine is a must. We recommend pairing our sweet spiced and creamy Chicken Korma with a Chardonnay wine with fruity undertones to bring out the sweetness and to compliment the creamy flavours of the cashews and cream this dish delivers.
