  1. Trim chicken of any fat, then cut into 4cm pieces.
  2. Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook onion and garlic, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened. Add spices and salt; cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add vegetables and chicken; stir to coat in spices.
  3. Add tomato sauce, stock, coconut milk and half the cashews; bring to a gentle simmer. Reduce heat to low; cook for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in half the coriander.
  5. Top korma with yoghurt and remaining cashews and coriander; serve with brown rice, if you like.

For a vegetarian version of the korma, replace the chicken with 250g tofu cut into 4cm pieces, the chicken stock with vegetable stock, and add additional vegetables such as 350g broccoli, cut into florets, and a sliced carrot.

Chicken Korma can be made to the end of step 3 up to 2 days ahead; store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze for up to 1 month.
