Fairly tasty, but I couldn't achieve the nice colour of the sauce - mine was too pale.

Followed everything, didn't find this to be very interesting. I know, korma isn't often that interesting, but I am still searching for a really nice nutty creamy dish, I know the recipe is out there!

good for a quick, light mid week meal, not one of the best curries i've tasted though.

I was expecting to be blown away by this recipe after reading the other comments, I followed the recipe exactly and have to say that I was dissapointed. I found this to be really bland, everyone ate it, even my 5yr old son who loved the almonds but we all found it a little tasteless.

Made this at the weekend, but omitted the chicken stock.

Also, I whizzed the onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor which gave the sauce a lovely texture.

My fiance loves chicken korma and said this was one of the best he has ever tasted, therefore I will be making again!

I found this meal too runny, far too much chicken stock and didnt look anything like the picture. sorry you got this one wrong.

Its difficult sometimes to cater for different tastes....my husband likes mild curry and I prefer a it a bit stronger, so I took half of the sauce from the pan, added a dash of sweet chilli sauce and a dash of tabasco to my half and we both loved it. I have to confess to misreading the recipe ingredients and bought and used half fat creme fraiche. I also added a little coriander. It was great!! for both of us.

This recipe needs tumeric, cumin and coriander powder to really lift the taste. The ground almonds helps to thicken the paste. You can use either low fat coconut milk or low fat yogurt, both will work well. If you think it still lacks the spicy zing, add a pinch of chili, cayenne or paprika powder.

This was fairly tasty and quite easy but it really did not taste at all like an Asian curry.

I made a dairy free version with soy cream instead of fromage frais and it worked really well. Lovely tender chicken and just the right spicyness. No need to go to an indian restaurant anymore!

It was lovely, I wanted it to be a bit more creamy though so I added some low fat Coconut milk, yum!

This is a great low fat curry that still tastes creamy. I was tempted to skip the toasted almonds but I was glad I didn't- their texture really adds something. I will definitely make this again.

This is a great quick recipe that tastes as good as a recipe from your local Indian Restaurant!

Quick, simple and very healthy. I used low fat yoghurt as I didn't have fromage frais. Loved the added crunch of the almonds. Will definitely make this again.

Fantastic! Quick, easy & cheap. Super fussy son loved it. Perfect for a Saturday night instead of a takeaway.
