Paneer Korma(Paneer Vegetable Korma) | Side dish for chapathi

Paneer kurma is my favorite with chapathis and parathas. I like the white kurmas served in restaurants with less flavour of garam masala and spices so just wanted to give a try and here is my version. And happy independence day wishes!! The colors of the kurma are apt for the occasion though not intentional :)
Paneer Kurma Recipe
Paneer Vegetable Kurma Recipe:
Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • Paneer - 1/2 cup cubed
  • Onion - 1/2 finely chopped
  • Carrot - 2 chopped
  • Peas - a handful
  • Ginger garlic paste -2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp chopped finely
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - as required
To temper :
  • Cloves - 2
  • Cinnamon - 1
To be grinded :
  • Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Fennel seeds(Sombu) - 1/2 tsp
  • Cashew - 5
  • Onion - 1

Paneer Kurma Recipe
Method:
  1. Pressure cook carrot and peas until soft. Keep aside.
  2. Heat a tawa with little oil and fry paneer till golden brown, switch off and drain in a tissue,keep aside.
  3. Then in the same tawa, saute onions and coconut till slightly browned. Add sauted onion and coconut with the ingredients under 'to be grinded' with little water to a fine paste and keep aside.
  4. Heat oil in a pan, add cloves, cinnamon , gingergarlic paste and onions saute till slightly brown then add the ground paste saute till raw smell leaves. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup water(adjust according to the thickness) and allow it to boil for 3mins. Add required salt.
  5. Add the pressure cooked veggies and fried paneer. Simmer for 5-7 mins until the kurma thickens and nice aroma comes.Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and switch off.
Paneer Vegetable Kurma Recipe
My Notes:
  • Frying paneer is totally optional but I prefer doing it in most of the paneer dishes.
  • You can also saute tomatoes with onions and coconut and then grind it together.
  • Adding a tsp of garam masala enhances the flavour too.
  • This accompanies well with rotis and dosas too.
  • This is closely the same way I make vegetable kurma too. You can add potatoes and beans too, adding vegetables is purely of your choice.
