Green Saffron’s Mild Korma (Serves 4-6)

What you need


500g/1lb onions, peeled, sliced

60g/2oz butter clarified butter or 3 tbsp vegetable oil

8 cloves garlic, crushed

60g or 2 fat inches ginger, grated

35g of GREEN SAFFRON Korma Spice Mix

1 tin coconut milk

1 tin tomatoes, chopped

1 tbsp sugar

1kg/2lb stewing lamb, cut into cubes

300ml/½pt (or 2 small pots) natural, plain yoghurt

How to make it

  1. Sweat the onions in the butter (or clarified butter/oil) in a large casserole dish or saucepan.
  2. Turn the heat up to medium, add the garlic and ginger and stir for a couple of minutes.
  3. Next, add the packet of Korma Spice Mix and stir for a minute or so.
  4. Turn the heat up a bit more before adding the tomatoes and sugar, stir and reduce the mixture for approx. 5 minutes.
  5. Add the coconut milk, stir thoroughly and reduce by half.
  6. Add the meat and the yoghurt and cook until tender (approx. 2 hours)…simple!

Serving suggestion:

Sprinkle with freshly chopped coriander and serve with Indian Basmati rice

Alternative suggestions:

Try replacing the lamb with 2lbs of chicken breast cut into mouth-size pieces, but remember to only cook it for about 30 minutes otherwise the chicken will be really tough. Fish could also be used instead of lamb. Monkfish is recommended as it has a firmer texture. Again, remember to only just cook the fish. This could take as little as 15 to 20 minutes.
