What is Korma?

Korma is a traditionally Indian dish that is made using either meat or veggies along with a creamy sauce with seasoning.

It’s similar to butter chicken, which many people are familiar with, except it doesn’t have any (or at least as much) tomato (I like to sneak in a little).

Chicken Korma can be a universally appealing dish because of its mild flavor and creaminess. Not to mention how simple it is to make, especially using your slow cooker.

While this version may not be completely authentic, it is very simple to recreate at home for a delicious meal full of flavor.

What ingredients do you need for chicken korma?

The main “unusual” ingredient you will need will be curry seasoning. Luckily I’ve made up a simple homemade curry seasoning that you can make with seasonings that are easy to find.

In addition to the curry seasoning you will need:

  • chicken thighs – be sure they are boneless and skinless. You could also use chicken breasts but the thighs will have more flavor
  • sweet potatoes – to add more substance and more flavor to this dish, we are going to add cubed sweet potatoes. Buy frozen already cubed sweet potatoes to keep it easy.
  • raw cashews – we will blend these up to help thicken and make the sauce even richer and creamier
  • coconut milk – to form the creamy sauce (and to keep it dairy-free)
  • tomato paste – while korma technically doesn’t include tomato, we are adding in a tablespoon of tomato paste to kick up the flavor just a notch
