Baby Corn Paneer Masala ~ Easy Side dish Recipes

Baby Corn Masala
How often do you think about making dinner and decide on making chapathi and a second later keep scratching your head for side dish ideas?Well,that's the scene at our house most of the days as both me and Ajay love having hot phulkas for dinner provided we have a scrumptious curry to dip it with.I love making north Indian curries but refrain from making it thinking of the calories.

But there are many curries which taste delicious without adding copious amount of butter or ghee.I chose this as I had to finish up a packet of peeled Baby corn and half a block of paneer.I made this one a while back and have made it a few times ever since.You can add veggies of your choice,substitute Mushrooms in place of paneer or mixed veggies in place of baby corn,it's totally up to your palate.
