Chicken, Pear & Butternut Korma
As I mentioned in my last recipe, Tesco were selling pears cheap so I bought a bag. As I don’t particularly enjoy eating them whole, I’ve been looking for ideas to include them in savoury recipes instead. Fruit in savoury dishes is something people either love or hate. I love it and I’m always looking for ways to stick anything sweet in to my diet. I decided to come up with a list of vegetables that I thought would pair nicely with pear and came up with butternut squash and spinach. I haven’t had a curry for a while now, so I thought this combination would suit very nicely, a slightly milder korma with coconut milk. This recipe was very ‘much make it up as I go along’ and hope that I get it right in the end. I left the skin on the pear as this is the more nutritious part and adds extra fibre, however if you prefer you can skin the pear first. I think this would cause the pear to break down more in the sauce and be less chunky. The end result is definitely more of a sweet than spicy curry but if you want it to have more of a kick then add extra chilli.
