Chicken Korma with Coconut Milk

Your family will not believe this dish is being served straight from your kitchen, it’s that good. 

I used to order this type of dish at our local East Indian restaurant, however now I make it often at home. 

This simple curry will impress even the pickiest of eaters. 

And will have your family thinking that you either a) ordered this from your local Indian restaurant or b) have taken some cooking lessons because it tastes so amazing! 


Yes in most cases it is, however it really depends on the way it is made. Some curries call for heavy cream and lots of butter.

Like the typically butter chicken recipe that we have all come to know and love.

I love butter chicken just like the rest of you. However I have learned to make it slightly healthier. Feel free to check out my recipe here for that recipe: Butter Chicken.

My recipe here calls for coconut milk and no cream. Making this a very healthy curry option for those trying to watch their calorie intake.

Cooking methods:

  • Simmer on a low-medium heat for 30 minutes on the stovetop
  • Cook in the pressure cooker around 10 minutes or depending on your instructions
  • Cook in the slow cooker from 8-10 hours.

Today, I used my pressure cooker because I was in a hurry to have dinner on the table so I could watch my favorite recorded show on the PVR.  

However this type of dish can be made either way.

This delicious curry is made with boneless chicken breast and simmered in a rich tomato, coconut sauce that you’re sure love time and time again.

Chicken Korma is a popular dish that originate from Indian, consisting of meat or vegetables braised with yogurt or cream, water or stock, and spices to produce a thick sauce. 

Chicken Korma is the ultimate comfort food for a lot of Indian people. And is typically served over a bed of Jasmine rice and or naan bread. 

As you may know if you have been to my blog before, I LOVE Curry.

So if you like curried foods as much as me then you are going to love this simple recipe too.

  • Ground Cardamom
  • Freshly Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Kasoori Methi” = “Dried fenugreek” , optional

The green seasoning you see on top of this dish is called “Kasoori Methi” which is basically dried fenugreek” leaves. It can be found in almost any international isle at your local grocery. See below!

If you cannot find “dried fenugreek” leaves you can just omit it. However I find it adds an extra element to the dish that is really nice.

I have shared a few other curry recipes here on my blog, however this is the first one with coconut milk vs cream/milk. So if your lactose intolerant than this dish may be right up your ally.
