Start off by placing the cloves of garlic, roughly chopped ginger and flaked almonds in a food processor with water and blend until a smooth paste is obtained.
Then heat the vegetable oil or clarified butter in a wide saucepan. Then add Cape Herb & Spice Korma Spice and fry for 10 seconds. Add the chopped onion and fry until a brown colour starts to develop.
Simply add the paste of garlic, ginger & almonds to the pan and fry for 1min before continuing to add your tomato puree, salt and garam masala.
Incorporate the tomato purée and fry for 1 minute or until slightly browned. Add salt, Cape Herb & Spice Garam Masala, and cream and gently stir into the dish.

Cover and allow to simmer over a low heat for 25 minutes or until the chicken/vegetables are cooked through, turning the chicken pieces over several times during cooking.
Stir in the juice of lemon/lime and remove from the heat.
