  • 200g jar Cooks’ Ingredients Korma Curry Paste
  • 150g tub natural yogurt
  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 75g butter
  • 2 cm piece ginger, grated
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp Cirio Tomato Purée
  • 300ml double cream
  • 28g coriander, chopped


  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 7g sachet dried yeast
  • 150ml hand-hot milk
  • 450g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp black mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Egg, beaten
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil for frying


  1. Mix the korma paste and 2 tbsp of yogurt together. Add the chicken, mixing to coat evenly. Marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.

  2. To make the naans, place 1 tsp sugar and the yeast in a small bowl. Mix in the milk and leave for 4-5 minutes until frothy.

  3. Place the flour, mustard seeds, salt, baking powder and remaining tsp sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the oil, egg, remaining yogurt from the curry recipe and yeast mixture, and mix to a dough. Using the mixer’s dough hook, knead for 10 minutes. Transfer to an oiled bowl, cover and leave for 45 minutes until doubled in size.

  4. Melt the butter in a large frying pan, shake off any excess marinade from the chicken and fry for 5 minutes, turning halfway through. Add the ginger, chilli, onion, tomato purée and remaining marinade mix, and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  5. Pour in the cream, cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat, stirring occasionally. Add the coriander.

  6. Meanwhile, knock back the naan dough and divide into 8 pieces. Roll each out on a floured surface to a rough oval shape, around 12cm x 20cm. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and fry the naans, 2 at a time, for 2 minutes each side until golden.

  7. Serve the naan bread with the creamy butter chicken.
