Mushroom & Paneer mixed vegetable Curry | Vegetable Coconut Milk Kurma | Vegetarian sides for roti/chappati

My husband loves Mushroom and I on the other hand love Paneer. We always have these arguments as to you never cook with mushroom / you never let me cook with paneer... does this happen in your house too? grrr. I have always found mushroom to be bland and tasteless, needs a load of other spices and ingredients to boost the dish. I know there are few of you who will say even paneer is almost tasteless, hmmm. Ok lets reserve this debate to another day!. So the other day I decided to do a curry with mushroom and paneer with a load of other vegetables like carrots and beans which we both love along with coconut milk, the result was a great tasting curry to go with almost any recipe like idly, dosa, chappati or even pulao. The curry is very mild in spice, fragrant and flavorful. Husband was happy and so was I ;-)

Cooks Wisdom

- Make sure you add paneer towards the end so that they hold their shape
- While making coconut milk add cold water to the mixer about 1 cup and blend for 2 minutes. Using a strainer extract the coconut milk
- To clean mushrooms add them to a bowl of warm water and let it sit for a minute then rub the bulb part of the mushroom with your figner tips and then chop them as you desire
- I added one cup milk to lighten the curry you can go ahead and add 2 cups coconut milk for a rich fragrant curry
