This chicken korma is great for using leftover roast chicken, or you can also use fresh diced chicken. It is also great for kids as it's not very spicy and uses yoghurt rather than cream so is not too heavy either. For very young children, add more yoghurt to their portion if necessary.

Not all eating at the same time or in a hurry? This dish can be prepared in advance and re-heated when needed. Remember if you are using leftover chicken, it should only be re-heated once. You can freeze this dish for 3 - 4 months. Tip Peel some fresh ginger and keep it ready to use in chunks in the freezer. It is easy to grate when frozen and you always have to buy more than you need.
