This is to show that super tasty dinners can be quick and easy to make, this is an easier version of a korma recipe a wonderful Indian chef, Santana who worked with us used to make. The first time we made this in the studio we all ended up eating it for a second breakfast! Serve with your favourite grain of choice.
