Pork Korma with Potatoes and Spinach

Thickened with ground almonds and yogurt, this ground meat dish is rich and creamy yet not as indulgent as traditional Indian korma curries that are full of cream and ghee (clarified butter). Serve with warm chapattis or nan to mop up the delicious, aromatic sauce.
