Simple to make, but with a delicious mild, fruity curry chicken flavour. If you like you could add some baby swetcorn. Its great served with poppadums and fluffy white rice.

  • Made this before going to work this morning - really simple, quick and very tasty.  Will be doing a bigger batch next time as I think its a definite for freezer stock piling!

  • I love your recipes I have your book, and been doing a lot of your recipes lately…I made your chicken and apple balls the other day..my 11 month old loves them! And so do we!!! ....I made this recipe tonight for him for tomorrow, so it gives the flavors a chance to marinade, ....I know he will love it, ...you certainly are an inspiration, and I enjoy cooking your recipes, ...so does my baby boy :) :)

  • I made this today for my 11 and 7 year old boys - we all enjoyed it and it was indeed one of the best curries we ever ate! I did replace the coconut milk with cream which made it extra rich. I wasn’t convinced about the apple until I actually tasted the dish. Conclusion: whatever you do, DO NOT replace/skip the apple! :-)

  • Made this curry today having had a longing for a curry for a few days! I loved it as did my 5 year old. As others have said it is nice and fruity and also packs in a few veggies which is great. Definitely one to add to my list of regular dinners and one I wouldn’t be afraid to serve up to adult family members and friends. I used low fat coconut milk to try and keep things more healthy and it worked out fine. I’m sure the regular coconut milk would have been even more delicious though!

  • This is a delicious curry and great for the whole family.  Our 3 and half year old declared it as “heel lekker” (absolutely delicious) and our almost 1 year old loved it too.

    I also did the pureed vegie thing after the first step, cooked the chicken and added the vegies and everything else back in.  Also exchanged the peas for sweet corn. 

    This will become a regular for us.

  • This was one of the nicest curries I have had in ages!! My two are a bit funny about lumpy food so I slightly changed the method I cooked it in to have a smooth sauce with pieces of chicken in it - simply made it up to the part where you add chicken and then pureed the veg/apple mixture - then poured it back into the same saute pan added the chicken and carried on as per the recipe - this was a great success - I didnt add the peas but serve it with extra veg on the side. Brilliant recipe!

  • I used Sharwoods korma paste and this was too spicey almost even for me.  16 month old wouldn’t eat it, unfortunately.  Perhaps taste and add the paste as you go, during the simmer time, to check the heat!

  • Hi there, i’m thinking of doing this recipe for my two girls age 9 & 6, at the moment i’m trying to give my 7mth old baby a variety of of what we as a family are eating, she is fully weaned and is eating lumpy food, do you think this recipe is suitable for her?

  • I made this curry last night, but was making it for 3 adults so ended up adding a table spoon of medium curry powder to make it a little tastier.  I also doubled up on everything seeing as the recipe only served 2.  I had some mushrooms that needed using up too, so I ended up putting them in.

    It was delicious, even though I put the curry powder in, it doesn’t turn it into a hot curry, even my nearly 3 year old enjoyed it, she kept coming back for more off my plate!!

    I will definately make this one again, it was so rich and creamy.

  • We made this last night, my 3 year old son is so fussy.  He ate loads, we let him help cut, stir and cook the curry for his tea and loved it.
    Many thanks, would recommend this recipe.

  • My 2 year old daughter loves this recipe. I now make it as a family meal and have some fresh chili chopped up on the side to add to the grown-up’s plates for a bit of extra kick.

  • My daughter really loves this curry but I do find the korma paste already contains garlic so may omit the extra clove next time as she ends up rather pungent after eating it!
