  13. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with chapati or fried rice..
  14.  DSC_2791
  15. You can also add panner cubes in this just like in Kribha's baby corn paneer curry...
  16. DSC_2792
  17. Add paneer just 1 minute before you put off the stove.
  18. If you are adding paneer, immerse paneer cubes in hot water and just the moment you are going to add,drain the water and add it to korma..! Do not boil after u add paneer for more time,just bring to boil.

You can also add crisp fried capsicum,onion and tomato at the end and garnish to get a restaurant taste and look. I tried so and took a picture the other day,so here’s an update…Enjoyed with roti

  8. looks lovely raks. but why do u need to soak cashews in water for 3 hrs? just curious to know as i usually grind them to paste with other ingredients. does soaking in water for 3 hrs make any difference to the one which is not soaked?

  9. the presentation is too good....sounds good

  10. Looks yummy Raks. I get canned ones only. step by step pics are so good. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Padma,Thanks for dropping here and thanx for the compliments over the dish...why dont you give it a try with the canned ones..:))
    Dear sia,
    I too used to grind cashews as such..but one of my friend Sangeetas kitchen said it will grind easily and smoothly if we soak and grind..and she told thats the way she does..After that I too followed that idea..!!But theres no harm in grinding without soaking too!!
    Thanks Shathi..!!

  12. wow that sure is a whole lot of spices, must taste yum :)
