Korma Curry Paste

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Jubes

A Jamie Oliver recipe from Ministry of food. This is a mild, spicey curry. If you like your curries hotter, you can add an extra chilli and leave in the chilli seeds

Delicious made as directed and a great intro for my DH and I into korma curries. This is quite mild for us as written, so I would definitely take the suggestion to add another chile or two next time and include the seeds. Thanks, Jubes! Made for ZWT8, team Diners, Winers, and Chives.
