Paneer corn korma, this protein rich dish is packed with the goodness of curds and paneer, and tastes great with piping hot parathas. Protein-rich foods like coconut, poppy seeds and cashewnuts are dry roasted and blended well to make a paste that imparts a rich flavour to this delicacy. Our body cells, which are made of proteins, undergo continuous wear and tear; hence, a good supply of proteins is necessary to make up for this.

A true paneer delight!! the roasting of onions and then blending really gives smoothness and flavour to the gravy.

Wonderful. Just like I tasted in a local Indian restaurant. I eat only sattvic food (in the mode of goodness) therefore instead of the onions I fried some rice flour and besan gram flour in butter and proceeded. Also I did not have any poppy seeds, so I used 3 tsps of ground flax. It went out awesome.
