Easy Chicken Korma Recipe
I’m no super chef, but I’m certainly not a bad cook either!
My main skills revolve around my Online Fitness Coach business. One part of this role is making sure that my clients eat healthy nutritious food. I want the people I train to enjoy eating meals. It is extremely important to me that they do not see mealtimes as a chore. Food is there to be enjoyed, not suffered.
My philosophy is that you should try everything. However, if you don’t like a particular food, stop eating it! There are always alternative foods offering the same benefits. Don’t limit yourselves to a restrictive diet, but do consider the food you fuel your body with. The food you fuel your body with directly impacts your mind, body and ability to maintain a fitness regime. For instance, convenience food high in fat will not give you the energy to complete a workout!

A good example of this for me is cumin. I simple hate the stuff!! I seriously considered not including it within my korma paste recipe below, but reminded myself that it is a critical ingredient within Indian cuisines. Excluding it would have detrimental effects upon the overall dishes flavours.

Easy Chicken Korma Recipe With Coconut Milk
A common ingredient within Indian cuisines is coconut milk. This is because of the creamy texture and taste that it adds to your dish.
A familiar substitute to coconut milk, which offers the same creamy texture, is Greek Yoghurt. Greek yoghurt is advantageous because it contains less calories than coconut milk, making the curry healthier.
In this recipe we have opted to use 0% Fat Greek Yoghurt. Don’t be afraid to switch things up from time to time, according to your taste and pantry preferences!
