  • Place the cashews in a bowl with half of the coconut cream and leave to soak while preparing the other ingredients
  • Chop the sweet potato into cubes and broccolini into small pieces
  • Combine all dry spices in a mortar and pestle or blender/grinder
  • Heat a dry pan over low heat and toast the spices for 1-2 minutes until the aromas start to release, careful not to burn. Set spice mix aside
  • Heat a saucepan over medium heat and add coconut oil. Once hot, add the shallots and saute for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften
  • Add in the fresh garlic, chilli, ginger, a pinch of salt and half of the toasted spice mix. Stir to combine and cook for 1 more minute
  • Add the sweet potato and stir well to fully coat the potato in spices. Add the remaining half of the coconut cream and half the water. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer and cook for approx. 10 mins, stirring occasionally
  • Place soaking cashews and coconut cream, poppy seeds and remaining spice mix into a blender, blending until thick and creamy
  • Once potatoes are soft, add broccolini and snow peas to the pan and stir. Add more water if necessary and cook, covered for 2-3 minutes
  • Mix the creamy cashew sauce into the pan to fully combine with the vegetables; they should be nicely al-dente and the potatoes sweet and soft
  • Add the remaining water (or more if desired), salt and pepper to season and stir in the coriander leaves
  • Take off heat and stir in the lime juice. Garnish with fresh coriander & serve over rice

History & Benefits

Korma is a traditional sweet and creamy Indian curry that uses nuts and either vegetables or meat. Cashews are a great source of plant protein, as well as fibre and heart-healthy fats. The vegetables in this dish can easily be switched up for whatever is seasonally available to you.
