Chicken Korma

Did you know that the classic creamy Korma has been voted Britain’s favourite curry? In a Just Eat survey of 2,000 people, 29% of them ranked their top curry as Korma.

Usually made with double cream and tons of oil, takeaway or ready-made Kormas can be very high in fat. So we’ve BeeZeefied it and made some simple healthy swaps to cut calories, while making sure it still has the nutty, creamy flavour we love! We’ve made a Chicken Korma, but you could substitute the chicken with Tofu or mixed veggies (like aubergine, courgette, cauliflower, broccoli or green beans) to make it vegetarian or vegan.
