Mock Chicken Korma with a Kick


4 large chicken breasts (diced)

2 level tsp ginger paste

2 heaped tsp garam masala spice mix

2 tsp chilli flakes or one red chilli finely chopped

2 tsp butter or margarine

1 large onion finely chopped

250 gm closed cup mushrooms

250 gm baby sweetcorn

250 gm peas or sugar snap peas

1 can of coconut milk

2 tbsp of condensed milk

handful of roughly chopped coriander

2 tsp cornflour mixed with 2 tbsp of water


Coriander and Chilli Rice

2 bags of easy cook basmati or long grain rice

half tsp of chilli flakes

handful of roughly chopped coriander



Method – Main

Dice the chicken breasts into equal sized pieces and place in a bowl.

Mix together the chilli, ginger, garam masala with half a can of coconut milk and the 1 tablespoon of condensed milk.  Add half the handful of roughly chopped coriander.  Pour over the chicken pieces and leave to marinade for 15 minutes.

Turn slow cooker onto high and add the butter, finely chopped onions, mushrooms and peas.  Add the chicken and marinade to the slow cooker pot.  Turn slow cooker down to low and leave for at least four hours until chicken is fully cooked.  Stir in cornflour and water mixture and  leave to thicken.   The chicken korma should have a creamy texture and taste savoury with a sweet undertone.

Cook 2 bags of easy cook basmati rice in salted water (as per packet instructions)

Drain and put in warmed serving bowl.  Mix in the coriander and the chilli flakes.  Gently fluff the rice with a fork.

    Yummy! I was thinking I must try to use our slow cooker more often. Thanks for sharing x

      It was very nice – I think next time I would add just a squeeze of lime to give it a citrus tang!

    Looks delicious! I have a real aversion to coriander, but that’s not a big deal when making your own xx

  3. Yes, I’m well up for that and really need to try some actual recipes for my slow cooker – I tend to throw things in and see what happens, which is generally disappointment! So, this sounds ace. Do you recon you could leave out the condensed milk? It’s not the sort of thing I’d know what to do with after taking a little out of a can!! xx

      Oh you could make millionaires shortbread – people will seriously invite you to parties if you say you are bringing it! We will be posting our family’s recipe soon!

    Chicken Korma has always been a favourite! I wonder what adding raisins to the rice would taste like…guess I’ll have to try it out 🙂 thank you very much

    I always tell myself I should make more curry…this looks so doable and yummy! My children tend to fuss about curry but I think I might try this (sans the kick) for them and see what they feel! Hope you’re enjoying the World Cup 🙂 x
