Often thought of as a bland dish for unadventurous diners, the Korma actually has a history as rich as its sauce. It was once a noble dish of high status that graced the banquet tables of the Moghul imperial court. While the curry houses of the UK have spun this dish into a delectably sweet coconutty curry, we’re taking it back to its sophisticated royal roots and letting the warm spices and almond flavours shine through.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Get the rice and the onions on

    Cook the rice according to pack instructions and keep warm (see tip).

    Heat a little oil in a lidded saucepan over medium heat and fry the onions for 6-8 mins, or until golden. 

  • 2.

    Cook the chicken in spices

    Add the KORMA CURRY PASTE to the onions along with 1 tbsp of water and fry for 1 min.

    Add the chicken pieces and the COCONUT & GARLIC PUREE and fry for 1 min.

    Add 150ml water and stir it in to fully incorporate it into a sauce. Cook for around 3 mins. 

  • 3.

    Add the almonds and cream

    Turn the heat down to medium-low, then mix in the ground almonds along with 1 tsp sugar.

    Pour in the cream and bring it to a gentle simmer, cover it with a lid and let it cook for 2 mins.

    Stir in the KORMA SPICE GARNISH, re-cover the pan with a lid and cook for 3 more mins, or until the chicken is cooked through. If the sauce gets too thick, just add 50ml more water to loosen it, and stir it through. 

  • 4.


    Serve the Korma over rice with some flaked almonds on top and a squeeze of lemon (if using).

Love this dish. So easy to cook

Jodie - Jun 14, 2019

Wow. Absolutely delicious. And this is coming from a Madras girl! I never order Korma as I don't like creamy or mild curries, so was pleasantly surprised by this! Great flavour, no coconut milk so not sickly, and I didn't miss the heat too much (granted I did sprinkle some extra cayenne pepper in...). Best simply cook curry.

Sarah-Jayne - Jun 13, 2019

Delicious! I've tried all the Simply Cook curries & they are all so yummy! I tend to go with a curry that has more of a kick, such as the Murgh Kari, but this was a delicious mild, tasty alternative. A hit with the whole family.

Lovely curry, a few too many flavours going on for my liking but it’s well worth the purchase.

Jo - Jun 10, 2019


Gemma - Jun 10, 2019

Don't like prawns, so we cooked it with chicken. Very nice

A* for this ????

Brittany - Jun 10, 2019

Was a lovely dish! Just not to my taste

David - Jun 09, 2019

Favourite meal so far of the ones I've cooked. Packed full of flavour. The toasted almonds were a nice touch and it went well with the homemade naan breads (recipe from BBC good food).

Ria - Jun 09, 2019

Really tasty, was much better than I expected! Would order again.

Catherine - Jun 08, 2019

Marianne - Jun 08, 2019

Very tasty. We added some left over minced lamb to ours. Awesome

Tanya - Jun 08, 2019

Super easy to make. Made this with paneer form my fussy son and he enjoyed it. My only criticism would be, that as everything seems to be pre-seasoned and is quite strong and there just seems to be a bit of an aftertaste. Not sure whether this is from the garlic paste.

Brian - Jun 07, 2019

Found this ok but nothing special. A korma usually makes up for lack of heat by being tasty and creamy. I found this to be lacking in both.

Samantha - Jun 07, 2019

A little mild for me. 1 & 4 year old loved it

Sam - Jun 06, 2019

I would never order korma because it is too creamy and sickly. However this is sooooooooooo nice. It is not sickly at all and it is full of flavour.

Khalima - Jun 05, 2019

Lovely dish - one of my favourites so far !

Alex - Jun 05, 2019


Lara - Jun 05, 2019

L - Jun 04, 2019


Victoria - Jun 04, 2019

Loved this korma! Makes a nice change to the traditional korma.

Sharon - Jun 03, 2019

Umm!! Just ok.

Bethan - Jun 03, 2019

Flavours were great but sauce needs to be thicker. My husband usually doesn’t like a korma but he really liked this one. I would get it again but maybe add less water next time.

Sophie - Jun 03, 2019

Mild but so tasty and done in 20 minutes. My favourite so far

Katlin - Jun 02, 2019

Absolutely delicious!
