Chicken Korma with Garlic Coriander Naan

one of the nicest korma I've tasted
for a long time

This is my take on Rahila Hussain's winning entry
on ITV's "Food Glorious Food"

Chicken Korma

2 tbsp butter
1 tsp ground coriander 
1 tsp ground cumin 

1 medium onions, finely minced
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp grated ginger
salt to taste
1 tsp ground white pepper 
1 green chilli, finely minced 
4 green cardamom pods
6 pcs chicken boneless skinless thighs, deboned, cut into bite-size chunks
1 tbsp fresh coconut, finely grated (alternatively, use desiccated coconut)
1 tbsp pistachios, finely ground
1 tbsp almonds, finely ground
1 tbsp cashew nuts, finely ground
2 green chillies, halved lengthways
2 cups water
300g natural yoghurt, lightly whisked

Heat the butter in a pan.
Add the garlic, ginger, onion, green chilli, cardamom, ground coriander and cumin and allow to fry for 3 minutes on a low heat. 
Stir in the salt and white pepper.
Add the chicken and turn the heat up. Stir fry for 15-20 minutes, or until the oil separates from the meat. 
Add the coconut, pistachios, almonds, cashews, halved chillies and the water.
Bring to the boil then simmer over a low heat for 5 minutes.
Stir in the yoghurt and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the oil separates.
Garnish with the chopped coriander.
