FAKEAWAY CHICKEN KORMA
 
A firm favourite for any takeaway lover, this korma is quick and easy to make and a whole lot cheaper and healthier than your standard takeaway.       This comforting recipe uses yogurt for a natural creamy texture and I always add more vegetables for extra fiber and nutrients.
Top tip: this tastes better the day after it's made!
