“In this mild Northern Indian dish, chicken is simmered in a creamy fragrant sauce with onion, garlic, ginger and cashews. Serve over basmati or sticky rice. Add more chili or cayenne for more heat.” - by Trina

"I loved this recipe! But it is much simpler and just as good if you can cut out some steps. It is so quick and easy! Instead of processing my own garlic and ginger paste which can be time consuming..." See more and messy, I picked up some garlic paste and ginger paste at a local Indian grocer. I used 1/4 teaspoon garlic paste and 1/8 teaspoon ginger paste (don't use too much ginger paste because the taste can be very overpowering!). Also, instead of boiling the water for the cashews (cutting out some steps here!), I just crushed up the cashews in a paper towel and put it in after the liquids were poured in and just let it cook. You can also substitute the cream with low fat coconut milk and it turned out GREAT!!!!!"
"This dish was as good as any chicken Korma I have had in an Indian restaurant. Two things to note, I used fat free coconut milk in place of half and half. Also, several reviewers mentioned that it was..." See more a very mild dish. Well, Indian Chili powder is not the same as Mexican and is, in fact,very hot. It can be purchased at an Indian food store. The brand I use is Rajah. It makes a huge difference to the flavor, but use it sparingly."
"Very good. After the first night, I'd originally intended to give this recipe 4 stars and write, "Nice complex flavors, but too mild for my tastes. Still good, and something I wouldn't be surprised ..." See moreto be served at a real Indian restaurant." But the leftovers were even better! I guess sitting for a day gave the flavors time to coalesce and assert themselves."
