coming to the recipe, you can add red chilli powder but the green chillies along with coriander leaves gives you perfect color and tastes entirely different and more like our South Indian kurma.I added tomatoes just for the color and it came out very well and it does not affect the taste.This can be perfectly goes with biryani and pulao varieties and also with some flat breads too.I really enjoyed this particular recipe as it is very different from other paneer recipes and you does not need any spicier element to make this curry.this is also one of mild recipes i tried so far and i love the addition of pepper powder in the recipe.
