Paneer korma recipe
Recently I heard about Saravana bhavan white vegetable kurma from a reader and got a request to post it.I am yet to try that recipe.Today i made this white kuruma using paneer after seeing the recipe in a cookbook by Deepa sekar.She had given the title as”Paneer Pasanda” but i guess paneer pasanda recipe is different.This gravy is very much related with Shahi paneer masala.So I named it as “Paneer white korma” after seeing its colorWinking.This gravy is of pucca North Indian style and not related to South Indian kurma in any ways.There is neither tomato nor coconut used in this recipe.Boiled,cooked onions with milk makes the base for this gravy.So this korma has got a mild sweet taste which i loved it the most.Basically i like the combination of sweet and spice taste in gravies.So i loved this gravy to the core and i licked the kadai thoroughly before washingTongueSilly.This white kurma(vellai kurma) tastes the best with chapathi/Roti & Naan but not with rice.I packed it for Sendhil’s lunch box today and waiting for his feedbackWaiting.Friends,if u like mildly sweetish gravies,do try this recipe.I am sure kids would enjoy this with chapathi.

This gravy thickens as time proceeds.So adjust its consistency by adding milk and check for salt.Enjoy with chapathi !

Note
  • For variations u can add 1 tsp of red chilli powder and 1/2 tsp of dhania powder instead of green chillies. But the color of gravy turns orange’ish like paneer butter masala.
  • Adjust the quantity of milk based on need.Kasoori methi gives a restaurant touch.So never skip it.
