Chicken korma is a traditional Indian dish with dozens of different variations. However, they all have one thing in common: they are all oh so full of flavor and we want them now! Here is a keto version of this wonderful Indian dish made with chicken and cooked in a rich onion gravy with an arsenal of spices.
51⁄3 tbsp ghee
11⁄3 red onions, thinly sliced
51⁄3 oz. Greek yogurt
4 whole cloves
11⁄3 bay leaves
11⁄3 cinnamon sticks
11⁄3 star anise
4 green cardamom pods
10 whole black peppercorns
20 oz. skinless chicken thighs or chicken drumsticks
11⁄3 tsp ginger garlic paste
2⁄3 tsp turmeric
11⁄3 tsp kashmiri red chili powder
11⁄3 tsp ground coriander seed
2⁄3 tsp garam masala seasoning
11⁄3 tsp ground cumin
salt, to taste
fresh cilantro, for garnish
Heat the ghee in a wok or heavy-bottomed saucepan and deep-fry the onions on low-medium heat until they get a nice golden brown color.
Remove the fried onions from the pan. Mix yogurt with the onions in a blender to get a creamy paste.
Reheat the ghee in the saucepan. Once it gets hot add cloves, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, star anise, green cardamom pods and black peppercorns. Fry for 30 seconds or until they start to sizzle.
Add the chicken thighs and drumsticks. Season thoroughly with salt. Add the ginger garlic paste, combine well and fry for about 2 minutes.
Add turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala and cumin powder. Combine well and fry for 2 more minutes.
Add the fried onion yogurt paste, combine well. Add some water. You can use the water to rinse out the blender so don't waste any of the paste. Mix well.
Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender.
Garnish with fresh cilantro.
If you have kewra, an extract distilled from the Indian Pandanus plant, on hand you can add a drop or two for added flavor.

I recently joined RADD after moving from the city to Glen Cove, and so far the experience has been great! The owners... and staff have been incredibly welcoming, from the moment I requested information Dan reached out to me immediately (like, within a minute of pressing submit) and wanted to learn about my goals as well as what drives me to be fit and healthy. Since it’s a family run business, there’s definitely a personal touch you sense right away, they care a lot about their members and the quality of the space and equipment. With Covid, the safety measures in place have made me feel comfortable, and I’ve really enjoyed the workouts so far.

Everyone is super friendly and accommodating, I highly recommend RADD to anyone passing through the area or looking for a new CrossFit gym or fitness community.read more
