All in One Baked Korma - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

Cooking a curry at home is so rewarding but it can be messy and time consuming. That’s why we came up with this one pot korma recipe! 

Our All in One Baked Korma is creamy and flavourful, but it’s all cooked in one pot – even the rice. This saves so much fuss and means less washing up. Result!

To cut down on calories we’ve used a carton of dairy free coconut milk rather than the tinned version, which is much higher in calories. 

This gives the same nutty taste, whilst making sure the dish is still slimming friendly. 

The mildly spiced flavour of the korma soaks into the rice as it all cooks together, creating a delicious, hearty meal that the whole family will love.

How do you know when All in One Baked Korma is cooked?

To keep your family safe, the advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes.

How long can you keep All in One Baked Korma in the fridge?

Recipes that contain rice can be a source of serious food poisoning if it’s not stored properly. 

Rice can contain heat resistant spores that may turn into bacteria, so you should always take extra care when cooling and reheating.

You must remember to do the following if you’re going to keep leftover rice:

  • Cool the rice as quickly as possible (ideally within one hour) then put it in the fridge immediately. You can split larger portions up into smaller batches to cool quicker.
  • Reheat and use any leftover rice (stored in the fridge) within one day.
  • When you reheat any rice, always check it is steaming hot all the way through.
  • Don’t reheat cooked rice more than once.

Can I freeze All in One Baked Korma?

As when keeping rice in the fridge, make sure to do the following if you plan to freeze it:

  • Make sure it’s cooled and frozen as soon as possible after cooking (you can freeze in batches to speed this up).
  • Always reheat until piping hot, and never more than once.

How do I reheat All in One Baked Korma?

From chilled: Place in a microwave proof container with a loosely fitting lid and heat for 3-4 minutes until piping hot. Stir halfway through the cooking time. 

From frozen: Allow to defrost overnight in the fridge and reheat covered in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, stirring halfway through. Ensure the dish is piping hot.

For more information about reheating rice please take a look at the NHS website.
