Paneer Kurma or this Spicy Paneer Korma Mughlai Style is a delicious side dish you can make for mild pulaos or for naans. Planning properly for this gravy makes it easy to make.
We have been making Paneer Butter Masala every week for many years now, ever since kids started liking Paneer. Occasionally we end up making a new version of Paneer in gourmet styles. This time I have paired up with Navratana Pulao and both the dishes got so paired well!
I also made this gravy served with Parotta and we all loved it. If you are looking for creamy, gourmet gravy, this is the one!
We are starting a new edition BM#101 where for this week I am making Creamy Gravies. Creamy Gravies are those that have creamed base and fresh cream added.
