Korma Curry Recipe


You’ll need:

1 pouch of Pestle Korma Paste

500g diced lamb, firm fish or vegetables

300ml water

1 heaped tbsp yogurt (dairy or non dairy)


Cooking instructions:

1. Add paste and water to pan and bring to a gentle simmer for 5 minutes before adding meat, fish or vegetable

2. Loosely cover and cook until tender (lamb – 60 minutes & fish and veg for 20 minutes)

3. Remove from heat, then gently stir through the yogurt


Useful tips: Stir frequently and add water if sauce thickens too quickly. Allow to cool slightly before adding cream and butter.


Alternative uses: This paste makes an incredible marinade for kebabs or slow roasted lamb – simply mix paste with 1 tbsp yogurt and marinade for 4-24 hours before cooking.
