These Pestle fresh curry pastes are handmade in Sussex. With flavours rooted in cultural unity, each paste captures the authentic flavours of some of the most well-known and loved curries. Simply add fish (or meat / vegetables) for incredibly tasty, simple and quick dinners that serve 4 people.

This korma paste is mild, made of warming spices such as mace, cinnamon, coriander and cumin combined with yoghurt for a luxurious celebratory dish.

Korma is an adaptation on the Urdu name Qorma, meaning ‘to braise’ - the dish originates from Moghul rulers and can be traced back as a banquet dish in the 16th century. This curry is rich, can be served alongside various meats or vegetables and would usually be medium heat but can vary. Said to have been served at the inauguration of the Taj Mahal by Shah Jahan, this dish now has many variations and styles across the subcontinent.

You can also use this paste as an incredible marinade for kebabs or slow roasted lamb - simply mix paste with 1 tbsp yoghurt and marinade for 4-24 hours before cooking.
