I'm looking for a superb Chicken Korma recipe. I've looked around the 'net and so many recipes seem to be met with the criticism "too bland." I'm not looking for 100,000 Scoville Units, but I would like a dish with impact...unless Chicken Korma's just not supposed to have impact.

None of my go-to books and sources seem to have this recipe.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Korma is meant to be mild and creamy. It is often recommended as the curry for people who don't like curry / chili heat. That doesn't mean it should be bland, however.

Chilli isn't something that clashes with other ingredients - choose a recipe and put in as much as you like.

That said, I find Julie Sahni's korma very good - lots of aromatics in there, including a lot of bay leaves. By design it doesn't have a lot of spice heat, but even made as written it has plenty of impact.

QUIET!  People are trying to pontificate.
