Paneer Kurma (Kruma, Korma)

My kids love anything with Paneer. To me, Paneer dishes are quite easy to make also it is easy to make high protein dishes with it. It is good for both busy weekdays or lazy weekend. Yesterday till late evening I couldn't make up my mind on dinner. It has been while since I made paneer. Since Paneer is my first son's most favourite and I always wait for him to be back from his boarding to make it.. So today he is back for his weekend break.
