    I make this a lot cause it is nice to me haha. It is basically the chicken tikka recipie but with korma and i don't do it exactly the same. Here is how i do it i'm only one person so i make enough for two and have it for lunch next day, double it all for more. I'm also a veggie so i use quorn which doesn't take as long to cook as chicken so be careful to cook longer for real meat:

    Chop 1 onion (optional)
    Chop some muchrooms (optional)
    Chop 1 pepper (optional)
    Add meat if you have it, and cook all together for a bit until meats browned/whatever meat does!
    For quorn don't add this until after the veggies and sauce has cooked for a bit unless you like the crunchy veggies, i like them soft and mushy
    Add 2 heaped tbsp of Fat Free Natural Yogurt (i use Onken)
    Add 200g of Sainsburys 0% Fat Free Fromage Frais
    Add about 3 tsp of Korma spices
    Add a tbsp of sweetener
    Mixx all together well (unless making the sauce separately)
    Cook until the meat is done

    Serve with Boiled Rice and enjoy :)
    The sauce does tend to go lumpy so if you want it very smooth i would advise making the sauce separately and blending it

    I will try the separate sauce tonight and photo graph it, i personally don't mind it lumpy cause it adds more texture, but i know all people are different!

    Mine is for the person who can't afford to or doesn't have the time to do that that's why I posted it. It's different to that one and frankly it's a little patronising that you posted that...

    I'm sorry that you feel that I am patronising! I had just developed this recipe and the Thread was Korma, and if you looked at my recipies, you would see that they are all like that, I live on a pension so I don't have money to waste, nor am I knocking your recipe..
    I started to add my recipes on this website after lots of requests for them, +50,000 hits since January this year, so someone likes them............

    Thats fabulous. But this is a different and more simple way to make it so bombarding my post with your own i felt was a little insulting.
