Nutrition for Runners: Chicken Korma and Homemade Naan


Tonight’s recipe is a great option my wife tried this week. It was the first attempt to make Indian food in our house. If you are interested in trying these recipes you can find the chicken korma here and the naan here. 

Our version was slightly different than the recipe posted. We used regular milk instead of coconut milk. To compensate 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut was added. In addition a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes was used instead of 3 diced tomatoes. If you go with canned tomatoes I would recommend not adding the salt called for in the recipe. Finally, our version was made with chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. 

It might not be something you want to eat all the time but you can play around with the ingredients to suit your needs. It was a good choice for me after a tough run after work Monday.

If you are having an Indian dish Naan bread is a must. Our version was healthier because we chose not to brush it with butter and we used 1 cup of whole wheat flour with 3 cups of regular flour. It tasted great that way!

The recipe took some time to make but it used regular ingredients and did not include some of the unpronounceable ingredients you find in store bought products.
