Notes
1. I pressure cooked the baby corn for 2 whistles and added it to the gravy to reduce the cooking time.
2. Do not over cook the paneer. Soaking it in hot/warm water makes it really soft. Add the paneer last and switch off within a few minutes. The paneer will cook in the residual heat of the curry itself. This will give you very soft paneer.


Until next time,
