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.
