This Chicken Korma Curry recipe is the perfect mid-week dinner to cook in your Actifry air fryer. Chicken Korma is a mild, coconut curry which can be eaten by the whole family.

This Indian Takeaway favorite is perfect to serve with fluffy rice and naan breads. I’ve stuck to simple ingredients you’ll be able to find in your local supermarket. 

How to make Chicken Korma Curry in your Actifry

Scroll down for recipe card and ingredient list. 

1. Make sure you have all the ingredients, chop your chicken into bite-sized pieces and chop your onion.

2. Add the onion to the Actifry with 1tbsp oil and 1tsp sugar – cook for 5 minutes with the paddle in. 

3. Whilst the onion is cooking, add the lazy garlic and turmeric to the chicken.

4. Stir to fully coat the chicken.

5. Shake the can of coconut milk to combine the watery bit with the thick cream – then open and stir. 

6. After 5 minutes, open the Actifry – your onions should be slightly cooked like this:

7. Add the chicken pieces to the onions – be careful to not touch the top of the paddle (as the turmeric can stain).

8. Cook for 5 minutes (with the paddle in).

9. After 5 minutes, open the lid and pour in the coconut milk.

10. Add the curry powder.

11. Use a spoon to stir the powder into the milk, so it is smooth.

12. Cook for a further 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and white throughout. 

13. Serve with a sprinkling of coriander (optional) – I love this curry with white rice and some naan bread!
