This is my favorite korma sauce recipe, I have made it many times. Sometimes I use coconut cream instead of cream and sometimes I use it for paneer recipes. Tastes like the korma I used to have in indian restaurants, delicious! I can't believe I never got around to reviewing it until now.
The sauce tastes EXACTLY like what I get at our favorite restaurant. I'm excited to make this again and again. Thank you!
i've been looking for a great vege curry & i think this might be the one! Don't be fooled by the long list, it really is very easy. I used yoghurt instead of cream with no problems, although cream would probably be tastier still! Planning on trying some more of your recipes soon Heather, they all look so yummy. thanks very much for posting!!
