Chicken & Vegetable Korma

It’s funny, I’ve always been interested in how to make a curry that comes out like they do in the Indian restaurants- smooth, rich and creamy.  I tried so many and they all came out tasting powdery or watery, something was never quite right.  However, the other day I had a craving for a curry and thought I’d try again. of course now my requirements are not only “smooth, rich and creamy” but also gluten free, paleo friendly, keto friendly and sugar free (believe it or not, some recipes call for sugar!).

With all of those so called “restrictions” and winging it a little bit as far as ingreidents go (although I did use this recipe as a rough guideline), I ended up making one of the best curries I’ve ever tasted!  To get a glimpse of how happy I am with this recipe, I ate the entire batch the first day.  Then made it again the next day.  Then again the day after that.  I figured 4 days in a row would be a bit much so I left it there but believe me when I tell you this is one of those recipes that tastes so good it should be a guilty pleasure, and yet it slips right in to any healthy lifestyle choice 🙂

I’ll stop going on now and leave you to find out just how good this one is for yourself 😀  Enjoy!
