Chicken korma

Chicken korma



  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • 1/4 cup korma curry paste
  • 500g chicken thigh fillets
  • 20ml (1 tbsp) vegetable oil
  • 1 brown onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tin (400g) diced tomatoes
  • coriander, rice and naan bread, to serve


Combine the yoghurt and curry paste in a bowl, spoon into a large plastic zip-lock bag and add the chicken, squishing it around so the yoghurt and curry paste cover the chicken entirely.

Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to 12 hours. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok, add the onion and cook for a couple of minutes, add the chicken, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, stir well and cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve with coriander leaves, rice and warm naan bread.

Serving Suggestions


  • You can pop the chicken in the fridge to marinate before you head off to work and it'll be nicely marinated by the time you get home.
  • Korma curry paste can be found in any supermarket in the International food section.
  • Thigh fillets are the best chicken cut for this curry. They are flavoursome in comparison to the breast.
