    This is my favorite korma sauce recipe, I have made it many times. Sometimes I use coconut cream instead of cream and sometimes I use it for paneer recipes. Tastes like the korma I used to have in indian restaurants, delicious! I can't believe I never got around to reviewing it until now.

    The sauce tastes EXACTLY like what I get at our favorite restaurant. I'm excited to make this again and again. Thank you!

    i've been looking for a great vege curry & i think this might be the one! Don't be fooled by the long list, it really is very easy. I used yoghurt instead of cream with no problems, although cream would probably be tastier still! Planning on trying some more of your recipes soon Heather, they all look so yummy. thanks very much for posting!!

    Wow! What an excellent recipe! Your tastebuds will be singing. The chilies in this DID hit the very very top of my tolerance for spicy heat, but the flavours were so wonderful that I went back for seconds in spite of needing to wipe a tear or two away LOL. Wishing to extend my limited experience if Indian cusine, I bought some garam masala powder and looked for a recipe containing it, and what a wonderful find this recipe is! DH made this and forgot to grind the cashews into paste, so I think that the sauce was more liquid because of this, but never mind we LOVED the sauce. DH also questioned the addition of the cream while he made it, but upon tasting we agreed it is definiately needed as it takes the sharpest edges off the heat and blends the flavours together wonderfully. We didn't add the optional panir or kasuri menthi because we didn't have them and we used fresh ginger finely grated instead of ginger paste, all I can say this that this is flavour like a bolt of lightening, so don't let the long list of ingredients put you off, it's all worth it! We served ours with plain white rice for an excellent meal that we agreed we will be making again.. soon! Please see my rating system: 5 brilliant stars for opening a door into a new cusine and for such a wonderful entry experience. We will be trying this sort of Indian cusine more often! Thanks!

<p>--Love to cook. Am always on the look out for nice recipes for Indian dishes from different regions of India! --Not the stereotypical Chicken Tikka Masala or Chicken Makhani (aka: butter chicken). I like the recipes that have been passed down that are not found in an Indian Restaurant. <img title=Cool src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /></p>
