Paneer korma recipe | side dish for roti

This time I wanted to try out a new paneer recipe other than the usual Paneer Butter masala which i make every week. This I tried out a few days back and it tasted very nice , my little one who doesn’t eat anything with rotis, except butter, feasted on the gravy.

ONION 1 NO
TOMATO 1 NO
GREEN CHILLI 1 NO
COCONUT 2 TBLSP(GRATED)
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP

GARLIC 3-4 PODS
SALT AS NEEDED
GARAM MASALA A PINCH
RED CHILLI POWDER 1/4 TSP
