  4. While the onions are cooking, cut the chicken into cubes and sautée it in a little oil until lightly browned on all sides.

  5. Add the chicken korma spices, tomato paste, and 1 tbsp coconut oil to the cooked onions, stir and simmer for 10 minutes. 

  6. Remove pan from the heat and using a hand blender, blend the chicken korma gravy until it's smooth.

  8. Taste and add more salt as desired, serve hot.
