This mild, delicately fragrant curry has a rich creamy sauce that sure to be a winner. Serve with plain boiled rice or warm naan bread. This chicken korma tastes even better reheated on the next day.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat and brown chicken pieces in batches until evenly browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch. Transfer to a slow cooker.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat and add onion mixture once butter has melted. Cook until flavors are well combined, about 3 minutes. Stir in cumin, fennel, cardamom, paprika, turmeric, and cinnamon and cook for 1 minute more. Mix in chicken stock, sugar, and salt; bring to a boil. Pour contents of skillet over chicken in the slow cooker. Cover.

  • Cook on Low until chicken is cooked through and flavors are well combined, about 7 hours. Stir in heavy cream and ground almonds.

Cook's Notes:

You can use ground cashews instead of ground almonds.

You can also cook the korma on High for 3 hours.

Fresh and complete ingredients would be best but I was limited by my pantry. I followed the directions but I had to make substitutions. I has no green chilies. This changed the taste significantly. I used 1 teaspoon of mild chili powder instead. I also put a big pinch of sweet curry powder. I had no ginger root so I used powdered ginger. No cardamom pods so I used powdered cardamom. I had no nuts to grind so I didn't add any. I had all the other spices. I used chicken tenders instead of thighs. The chicken turned out tender and juicy. This is a very forgiving recipe. It didn't taste like the korma we get at the Indian restaurant but it was still delicious. My family voted 5 stars! Read More
