Learn how to make Paneer kurma, paneer kuruma. Paneer in a coconut, cashew, spices, onion, tomato based gravy. Fennel seeds makes the kurma really flavourful that will linger in your tastebuds.
I have been making veg makhani with paneer for many days now, being Aj’s favorite. I wanted to make paneer in kurma style which I make usually. I had fresh paneer in stock, so wanted to try kurma for dinner, clicked along for posting here too. I usually skip tempering soambu aka fennel seeds as Vj hates fennel seeds.

But I just love the flavour a lot in Brinji and kurmas. it really elevates the flavour of the dish. Just make sure no to use too much. It turned out really good, if you want, you can add on few boiled veggies like beans, peas and carrot. Use good quality soft paneer/ fresh paneer for best results and cut into smaller cubes.
