- 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.
- Once the “rice” is made, heat 2 tablespoons of cooking fat in a large sauté pan over a medium heat.

- While the chicken is cooking, place all of the ingredients for the korma sauce except for the water into the food processor.
- Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
- 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.
- Cook for 2 minutes, then add the lemon juice, stir and continue cooking for another 3 minutes.
- Next, add the sauce and mix. If the consistency
is very thick addup to a 1⁄2 cup of water to thin it out.
- Allow the chicken and vegetables to simmer
withthe sauce for 5 minutes, or longer if a thicker consistency is desired.
