Ingredients:

  • Half a kilo skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 rooster potatoes, cut into pieces.
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1⁄2 onion, finely chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup of frozen peas, thawed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, as garnish (optional)
  • 4 tbsp cooking fat or coconut oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Ingredients for the korma sauce

  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1⁄4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1⁄2 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1⁄2 cup water

 

Preparation

  1. If using the cashews as a garnish, heat a dry frying pan over a medium heat and lightly toast until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is the size of a grain of rice. Don’t overcrowd or over-process, the cauliflower may turn to mush. If needed work in batches so you can keep an even consistency.
  3. Once the “rice” is made, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking fat in a large sauté pan over a medium heat.
  4. Add the cauliflower and season to taste with salt and pepper, stir to mix everything well.
  5. Continue cooking for another 5-7 minutes, until the cauliflower is just tender.
  6. Transfer to a bowl, cover to keep warm, and set aside.
  7. Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cook for 6 minutes then strain and rinse under cold water. Set aside.
  8. Heat a large skillet with 2 tablespoons of cooking fat over a medium heat.
  9. Add the chicken, season to taste with salt and pepper, cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through.
  10. While the chicken is cooking, place all of the ingredients for the korma sauce except for the water into the food processor.
  11. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  12. Once the chicken is cooked, add the carrots, potatoes, bell pepper, onion, and peas to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and stir to mix well.
  13. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the lemon juice, stir and continue cooking for another 3 minutes.
  14. Next, add the sauce and mix. If the consistency is very thick add up to a 1⁄2 cup of water to thin it out.
  15. Allow the chicken and vegetables to simmer with the sauce for 5 minutes, or longer if a thicker consistency is desired.
  16. Serve the chicken korma over cauliflower rice and sprinkle with toasted cashews, if using.
Feel free to substitute cauliflower rice with regular rice if this is more to your liking.
