Baby Corn & Paneer Gravy

PANEER BABY CORN FINAL

A medley of baby corn and cottage cheese (paneer) cubes with a crunch of capsicum coated with a thick flavourful gravy.

This is a rich gravy dish with a smooth tomato and onion paste and cashew nut puree. Whole garam masala spices blended with the tomato onion puree evenly distribute the masala flavour. Since you blend the whole spices along in the paste, you will not bite into a whole spice, thus keeping the gravy smooth.

This rich gravy dish goes very well with lachcha paratha.
