    Sweet almonds have a subtle fragrance that lends itself well to baking and also works well with…


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Cook onion with the dry spices over a low heat for 5-6 mins until the onion is light golden. Add the chilli, garlic and ginger and cook for 1 min, then throw in the mixed vegetables and cook for a further 5 mins.

  2. Divide the mixture appropriately between two pans if serving vegetarians and meat eaters. Chop the chicken into small chunks and stir into one pan. Add the stock, dividing between the pans appropriately, and simmer for 10 mins (if only cooking the veggie version in one pan, use 300ml stock; if dividing between two pans, add 250ml to each). Divide the peas, if necessary, and add, cooking for 3 mins more until the veg are tender and the chicken is cooked through.

  3. Remove from the heat and stir through the yogurt and ground almonds, if using. Serve sprinkled with the toasted almonds and coriander, with basmati rice or naan bread on the side.

Hi how do you make the vegetable stock?

Bland and certainly not worth the effort

I made this for a vegetarian friend and it was really nice. I used half fat crime frail and it was really creamy.

Totally agree with other comments. Watery and extremely bland tasting. Will definitely not be making this again.

Tasted OK but if id wanted a soup - id have made one….and a lot nicer tbh! Im not convinced yogurt is right for this….wont be making again.

I enjoyed this korma, as did my husband and kids. The sauce was thick and creamy. I wonder if people are forgetting to add potatoes which is why their sauce isn't thickening? I used creme fraiche instead of yogurt. Will be making again!

Just ok. Mine was nice and creamy (cooked mine in the slow cooker for 4 hrs) but lacked much flavour even though I added extra curry powder. Probably won't make again.

This Creamy Veggie Korma was neither creamy, or korma. I have noticed that somebody here has cooked the meal without the yogurt. This is simply madness, without the yogurt this dish can barely be described as a dinner worth eating. Likewise with the yogurt. I have no words to describe my disappointment. This Korma was perhaps the most bland array of chopped vegetables, poorly quantified spices, and for some reason on earth stock. I actually burst out laughing wen I was eating this meal as it was so uninspiring. It was like looking into the abyss.

I have just cooked this great recipe. The reason for not giving it 5* was based on me having to make some changes to make it tastier and thicker, based on other comments I had read. I added extra of all the spices. Not quite double but almost. I also used a couple of pinches of chilli flakes as I there was no green chilli's in my local supermarket. I part boiled the carrots and potato chunks to give them a head start to the broccoli, courgette and green beans. Finally, I added two or three teaspoons of flour and used full fat greek yoghurt to help with the thickness. It came out perfectly, was super tasty so I will most definitely be cooking again.
