Excellent recipe. I always add some frozen peas for the last fews minutes of cooking.

Used korma paste that I made myself following Jamie Oliver's recipe from his website. Worked really well.

Very easy recipe to do. Overall it was a really tasty curry, the only thing I didn't quite like was that mine had a slightly 'processed food/ out of a jar' after taste. I think this may be because i made the full amount of sauce but only added two chicken breasts... so I think the four tbsp of Pataks Korma Paste may have been too much. I'll make again but try less of it.

Love this curry. I've made it severl times now and always goes down well. You'd never guess it is low fat. Very tasty.

Lovely dish, delicious with or without the yoghurt. I forgot to stir it in at the end of cooking and so served it separately on the table. This pleased my husband no end. He hates natural yoghurt - and consequently wolfed it down.

Made this a few times now and every time it's really really delicious. Not too spicy as well so perfect for the family.

Absolutely the BEST curry recipe, period. Making curry at home has always been challenging and frustrating because it never tastes as good as take-away. This one was, by far, the most flavorful (but, at the same time, super healthy) curry I've ever made. You gotta love BBC GoodFood! BTW, I used a little less stock like some other reviewers said.

Very good indeed! I used the full 400ml of chicken stock but less yogurt, simply because I had a very big pot of yogurt and didn't bother to measure it out, and it was perfect. There was some left over (there are only two of us), and when reheated in the microwave the following day it was even better. Perfect to make in advance for guests.

Spiced it up with balti paste rather than korma paste and hot curry powder in the rice. Also, next time I'd simmer the curry without the lid to reduce the sauce a more. Otherwise, a delight!

I agree with FarmBoy74. The finished korma, although it tasted nice, was far too runny. I, too, will reduce the amount of stock if I make it again - prefer chicken passanda, though.

This was really really tasty - my favourite curry recipe on here & I don't usually like a korma!

Didn't quite turn out right, the yoghurt split when I mixed it in with the heat off. I found that 400mls of chicken stock gave to much liquid. For my next attempt I'm going to use natural yoghurt instead of low fat greek and also 300mls of chicken stock. My local Asda stocks korma paste if it can't be found in Tesco and Sainsburys

Really want to cook this korma but does anyone know where I can buy korma paste? I've tried Tesco and Sainsburys but couldn't find it! Thanks!

Really lovely recipe! I made it within day's of my magazine coming through the door! And I agree with Mandy, it's a great weight watchers dish!

Made it up until the yogurt then popped into the slow cooker for a few hours due to school things cropping up and time issues. Absolutely delicious and 12 points a serving on Weight Watchers (if anyone was wondering!)
