Thought skyr was just for breakfast? Not so! Take a healthy leaf out of Scandi cookbooks and make skyr your go-to ingredient for evening meals

 
Korma

Cooking family meals that deliver on flavour and goodness isn't always easy. What you need are some clever ingredient swaps, which is where Icelandic staple skyr — pronounced 'skeer' — comes in. Thick and creamy, you can use it in much the same way you would use your standard natural yogurt or cream. Arla® skyr is fat-free with reduced sugar and a high protein content. Why not keep a pot in the fridge to enjoy in everyday meals, such as this delicious chicken, courgette and red pepper curry?

Chicken, courgette and red pepper korma

Serves 4
Hands-on time 35 minutes
Total time 35 minutes

1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
600g skinless chicken thigh fillets, cut into chunks
1 large courgette, trimmed and cut into chunks
3 tbsp korma curry paste
6 tbsp Arla® skyr natural, plus extra to serve
1 large red pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks

For the raita
6 tbsp Arla® skyr natural
¼ cucumber, finely diced
2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
squeeze lemon juice

1 To make the raita, combine the yogurt, cucumber, mint and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season to taste, then cover and chill while you make the curry.

2 To make the curry, heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the onion for 5 minutes then add the chicken and fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3 Add the courgette and curry paste to the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute then stir in 150ml water until combined. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, adding the pepper after 10 minutes of cooking.

4 Remove the pan from the heat, and let cool slightly. Gradually stir in the skyr until combined. Return the pan to the heat and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

5 Serve the curry garnished with chopped fresh chilli and coriander leaves, and with a spoonful of extra skyr, if you like. Serve the raita on the side.
