Serves 4-5

Time taken – 1 hour

Note: 1. Use fresh and tender Baby corn for the dish.  Use also fresh veggies for better result.

2. I have extracted coconut milk at home.  One can even use the one available in the market.

3. I have used Amul thick milk  for the purpose.

4. Almonds is used to thicken the gravy.

5. Always simmering the flame on adding either coconut milk or milk to the gravy is to avoid the dish from curdling.

6. One can even fry the paneer cubes if needed.
