Here is an interesting and low cal way to truly enjoy and relish your favourite baked dish without compromising on health! I have given this dish a healthy turn by making it with a low cal sauce and low fat paneer… however, ensure you use absolutely fresh paneer to get the desired smooth and creamy texture.

You can use any vegetables of your choice; however, I chose broccoli as it is rich in vitamin C, A and other plant chemicals, which fight the free radicals that can cause damage to body cells. Both broccoli and baby corn are crunchy and blend well with the creamy sauce.
