Instructions

Cook the Rice
1

Pour the water for the rice (see pantry for amount) into a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.

Stir in the rice and 1/4 tsp salt, then bring to the boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium and cover with the lid.

Leave to cook for 10 mins, then remove the pan from the heat (still covered) and leave to the side for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).

Build the Flavour
2

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium saucepan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the korma curry paste, tomato puree and garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 min.

Poach the Chicken
3

Next, pour the water for the sauce (see pantry for amount) into the pan of spices.

Stir through the diced chicken, chicken stock paste and sugar (see pantry for amount).

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, 10-12 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Butter and Cream Time
4

Once thickened, stir through the peas, creme fraiche and butter (see pantry for amount). 

Cook until the butter has melted and everything’s piping hot, 1-2 mins. 

 

Finishing Touches
5

Once the rice is cooked, use a fork to fluff it up.

Add a splash of water to the curry if it's a little too thick. Season with salt and pepper if needed.

Serve Up
6

Share the rice between your bowls.

Top with the creamy butter chicken.

Finish with a sprinkling of flaked almonds and chilli flakes (add less if you'd prefer things milder), if you'd like.

Enjoy!
