honestly, i am not a huge fan of paneer korma recipe and i find it overrated, perhaps just because it is made with paneer. as matter of fact, i personally like the vegetable kurma and i enjoy it as a side dish for breakfast and also for day to day dinner. having said that, paneer korma is my husband’s favourite paneer recipe. whenever it’s his turn to make dinner curry, paneer kurma is his default option. but generally, he does limit the recipe with paneer cubes and the experiments it by adding other veggies to it. while the traditional paneer korma is just made with paneer cubes but certainly a good option to include the vegetable combination in this recipe.

the recipe for paneer korma is straightforward without any complications in it, yet some tips and suggestions while preparing. firstly, paneer korma is made with medium to mild spice gravy with a hint of sweetness in it. hence i would recommend to check and be cautious while adding green chillies to it. secondly, i have not added coconut milk to this recipe, but adding it makes it more flavoured and adds a nice texture to the recipe. lastly, the gravy for korma are generally white coloured but can be made red in colour by adding red chilli powder to it. i personally prefer green chillies rather than red chillies but it is completely up to individual preference.
