Paneer Korma - Paneer Kuruma Recipe

Paneer Korma
Paneer Recipes are usually hit with anyone and there are only least chances for anyone to say no to paneer.... Agree?! Paneer Korma / Kuruma - I already have a paneer white korma with vegetables but this is a altered version which is more flavourful, perfect as a side dish for rotis/phulkas or jeera rice.

My Notes:

  • Adding cream enhances the flavour and gives it a restaurant taste.
  • You can even add paneer as such but I usually toast it.
  • This goes well with rotis or even mild pulaos.
  • You can also add any vegetables of your choice along with paneer.

  2. I usually ignore kurmas for rotis..but this kurma has paneer in it, I guess I like it. Looks very creamy and like brown paneer cubes.

  18. I added a tiny amount of cumin, substituted (full fat - it doesn't split when heated) Greek yoghurt, and let the paneer cubes cook until soft in the sauce as they can be rubbery when fried and added to sauce for just a very short time - just my preference. Superb!
