Paneer Baby Corn Masala Curry
Paneer Baby Corn Masala Curry

Smooth and Delicious Paneer Delight!

Paneer baby corn masala curry is a rich and creamy dish made with paneer, baby corn, cashew nuts, tomatoes, fresh herbs, and spices. The ingredients blend together to create a delightfully mouthwatering meal.

Not only is this curry tasty, it's healthy, too. Mildly sweet and crunchy, baby corn is nutrient-dense and a good source of fiber. Paneer is a good source of protein, which helps strengthen bones and teeth.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups tomatoes, roughly chopped, pureed

  • 1/2 cup cashew nuts
  • 1/2-inch ginger, washed, peeled, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

Instructions

  1. Make a tomato puree from the tomatoes. Set aside.
  2. In a mixer or blender, add cashew nuts, chopped onions, ginger, and garlic. Add some water and make a thick paste. Set aside.

  6. Add the tomato puree and some salt. Mix well. Cook the mixture over high heat for 2-3 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  7. Reduce the heat. Add red the chili powder, coriander powder, and garam masala powder. Saute the mixture for 4-5 minutes or until the mixture is well cooked. Add water if needed to keep the gravy semi-solid or not very thick.
  8. Add the paneer and baby corn mixture back to the pan. Mix well.
  9. Add the milk cream and continue to saute for 1 minute. Add yogurt or thick curd, sugar, and remaining salt.
