Paneer, Spinach and Chickpea Korma

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 18 minutes   Rated:

This recipe first appeared in my Currying Flavour cooking class. I am not sure, it could now be in The Convenient Vegetarian cookbook, but I don’t think so. If you have never made Paneer, this is your chance. It is so simple. Basically the same thing as Queso Fresco, just pressed a little so that the whey comes out. The homemade version of Paneer is really fragile, you should be very careful with it. I like to leave it underneath the curry sauce so that it takes on all the flavours of the korma. In fact, I think this recipe improves over a couple of days, but we rarely get that opportunity in this hungry house!

Hope you enjoy!
