Saute the paneer cubes in the remaining oil,remove and keep aside.In the same pan, add the onions and saute till brown.Add the rest of the ingredients except coconut milk and cook for 2 mins.Lastly add coconut milk and sprinkle some cut dry chillies.Serve hot.

Note:As i dont like to use fresh cream in savouries i suggested coconut could use fresh cream too.

Good accompaniment for Chappathis and Rotis,

When curry leaves are added in curries or other dishes we tend to remove it while eating,so i think its a good dish for those who want to cut on cholesterol levels,and this dish gives you the full benefits of the curry leaf.
