Variations of paneer korma

There are many variations for this recipe depending upon style of preparation. Mughlai paneer,  shahi paneer, matar paneer are some of the variations, but this recipe is the tastier and also easy to prepare than any other which requires more time. In this recipe you can also add boiled matar or peas to it to make it matar paneer korma but I personally suggest you to enjoy the actual recipe and let me tell you won’t regret it.
