Mummy's karahi paneer

    Karahi paneer is a famous dish of northern India. The place of origin is Punjab. I learnt to make this dish from my mother, who is a very good cook. After i got married i made this dish for my husband as in my first cooking session. That was quite a crucial moment for me: preparing first time food after marriage is a significant task. But thanks to my mother and her special cooking skills, i made a sumptuous and lasting impression.
