This was a good, easy and mellow korma. I did half the cayenne after reading other reviews, and I thought with that change there was a nice balance (though I hardly found it overly hot, I think it would be fine as written) I used tofu in place of the panir, and I used coconut milk for the milk/cream. Kept all the other veggies as listed. Served with Naan. This one goes into the recipe box! I keep thinking it would be a great dinner party recipe, or Indian buffet addition. It tastes much like one of the kormas at our local restaurant.

Pretty good, this is a good Korma recipe. However, I'm guessing there is a typo on the amount of cayenne - I like a lot of spice, and I cut back to about half the amount of cayenne called for. Even at that, it was a little too cayenne-ish. I would ramp up the other 3 spices on the next go round, and perhaps cut the cayenne even a bit more. If one was to use a lot of cream (like 1/2 cup), it might be a good level of cayenne?

Holy cats this recipe is a WINNER!! Navrantan Korma is my absolute favorite dish at a restaurant named Sitar, in Springfield, MA. This recipe is amazing... thank you so much! I am a light weight when it comes to spicy food, so I cut back the cayenne pepper to 1/4 teaspoon (and that might still be too much). I could not find panir cheese locally (truthfully, I only looked in the grocery store), so it was omitted. Also substitued 1/2 and 1/2 for heavy cream, and grated fresh garlic and ginger (too lazy to look for paste for each). This meal was darn close to perfection - thank you so much for posting this BurtonFanatic!!!

Made lots of changes in ingredients, but kept the basics the same. The flavor and ease of this recipe make it 4 stars. We really enjoyed it. I used frozen mixed veggies- 1 lb.- tofu instead of paneer- no potatoes or raisins. I added cashews and peanuts. Lastly, I used skim milk and ff cream. Worked great. This is my new fav. tofu recipe. Thanks for sharing.

This is really nice. Creamy & flavourful. We enjoyed it without the Paneer & raisins, as we didn't have any on hand.
