This Chicken Coconut Korma curry recipe is a great way to incorporate turmeric, a potent anti-inflammatory spice, into your diet. Turmeric is an ingredient in the curry powder. The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, requires both pepper and a fat source to be best absorbed. Most curry powders contain black pepper, but feel free to add additional black pepper just to be sure.
Are you looking for a vegetarian alternative? Substitute one can of garbanzo beans in place of the chicken. Drain and rinse the beans and add in for Step 2. Saute for 1 minute. Bon appetit!
