Very poor. Doesn't look anything like the picture and definitely doesn't taste anything like a korma. There isn't even any coconut in the recipe! The dish it self was very bland not much taste at all. Don't waste you time, find another recipe.

got my tea spoons and table spoons mixed up!!!.... cayenne pepper!!.... some turmeric to add colour. a very easy dish to make for a rank amateur like me!

This is a great recipe. I'm Indian and it's just like my Grandmother's and Mom's. Color isn't important. Ours is usually white. Sour Cream makes it richer or yogurt for a healthier version. We never use nuts - I'd kick it out. Whole chickens are good.

Almonds do not puree sufficiently in a food processor. I suggest the addition of some turmeric to at least give it an attractive colour.
