Chicken Korma Stew Ingredient List

Hello Soupers,

It’s been a long time.  You must forgive me for not posting more, but you see, I have some large life changes which will hopefully warrant my time off.  In September of last year, my husband and I welcomed our first child: Helena Rebecca Palmer.  Not only has this little one kept me busy since arrival, but I had a very long bout of morning sickness (not sure why it is called this because mine was all day everyday) that lasted during my entire pregnancy.  Hence, souping was the furthest thing from my mind.

But, I’m back and I’m souping up some amazing creations starting with this fan favorite: Chicken Korma Stew.  It is inspired by the Indian dish and it is the perfect winter dish.  It is hardy, aromatic and just simply delicious.

Just in case you forgot how I operate, I will be posting the ingredient list today and tomorrow, the recipe will be up.  I do this so that busy folks like yourself will have time to plan your meal.  Happy Souping, until tomorrow.

Ingredient List:

1 package of boneless chicken breast (3.5 lbs)

1 cup of heavy cream

1.5 cups of plain Greek yogurt

12 ozs. of cashews

1/4 cup of Canola oil

Salt and pepper to taste

3 cups of onion

1-2 tbsps minced garlic

3 tbsps fresh ginger chopped

3 tbsps ground cumin

3 tbsps ground coriander

3-5 tbsps cardamom

3 tbsps turmeric

water as needed

 

 

“Soup”substitution

Hello Soupers,

The souping season is here. I can’t wait to share new ‘soup’er recipes with you. Soup E. Doup makes souping as easy as possible. We take the pressure off of you through adding little personal touches- providing shopping lists a day in advance to accommodate the lifestyles of busy soup enthusiasts, offering step-by-step instructional videos, and featuring fail-proof recipes.

Whether you are caught in a hurricane, an earthquake or a nor’easter (all of which were experienced in NJ this week), we realize that sometimes life can get in the way of soup. What happens when you just don’t have all the ingredients for the recipe? Before you throw in the ladle and order pizza, take your own stock. Ask yourself:

1. Do I have what I need for the basis of this soup (i.e. a way to make the stock, some of the veggies, etc.)? If your answer is no, look no further Domino’s is in your future.

2. Am I missing a couple of things? For example, I received an e-mail today from a fellow friend and souper Annalee Shelton. She was looking forward to the making Chicken Tortellini Soup, but in the process, she encountered a problem- she was missing tortellini. She did what any good souper should do in a soup crisis. She remained calm and looked for a ‘soup’stitution. Instead of tortellini, she used egg noodles pulled off a chicken noodle soup with a twist. (Pictured above).

3. Do I have additional ingredients? Use the recipes from this site as a guideline. You can always add other ingredients based upon your liking and what’s in your cabinet. In the process, if you do something fantastic, let me know about it. Send your recipe/photo and I will feature you on Soup E. Doup! Until then, happy souping!!
