This week, we've been exploring one of my favorite cuisines: Indian. There are some ulterior motives for this week, one of them being that learning how to make my favorite Indian recipes will hopefully save us moolah with my Indian food addiction. This is Quick Chicken Korma. Now, putting "quick" on the front of a korma recipe is kind of an oxymoron, but this recipe was excellent for a weeknight. Chicken korma is chicken in a mildly spiced, creamy sauce, with nuts. This one used cashews (so delicious!). If you have never tried Indian cuisine, this is an excellent beginner's dish, because it's not too spicy, and the chicken, nuts, cream, and yogurt are familiar ingredients. This recipe, though not the same as my favorite Indian restaurant's, was excellent, and easy to throw together. Serve it over some basmati rice, and you have found your new favorite comfort food.
