Coconut Veg Korma

Coconut veg korma recipe Coconut veg korma recipe

This is a lovely, simple coconut korma with a rich, well‐seasoned sauce. This dish isn’t spicy, but the potato and pea combo makes it hearty. It’s good with brown basmati rice or short‐grain brown rice, and is also great served with toasted pitta breads drizzled with a little oil and a pinch of salt and cut up into soldiers.

  5. Finely chop the fresh coriander, stalks and all, and add just before serving.
