I have not grown up too much of eating 'paneer' rather I grew up eating fish, chicken, rice, dal and vegetable dishes. I ate paneer in parties and very few times in restaurants. But after coming to US I learned how to make paneer at home and trust me, those self made soft white cubes gave me immense happiness. So, after that day we both have become paneer lover and have tried several dishes. This 'sahi paneer korma' is another rich mughlai dish from Indian cuisine. In this dish the lightly fried paneer is cooked in a creamy nut based gravy which tastes heavenly with plain chapati or naan or pulao. Try this in your kitchen and enjoy a lovely dinner with your loved ones.
