How to make Korma Paste:
1. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, almonds, poppy seeds, melon seeds, black cardamom, green cardamom pods, cinnamon stick, mace spice, cloves, and black peppercorns to a large pan. Roast for 1 minute or until all the spices and nuts are toasted and turn fragrant. Remove them from the pan and set them aside to cool.
2. Thinly slice 2 large onions and keep them aside.
3. Heat 1/4 ghee in a wide non-stick pan. Once hot, add sliced onions and fry onions over medium heat until they are browned and crisp. Also, add 1/4 cup of hot water to 1/4 cup cashews and let them soak for 10 minutes.
4. Remove them from the pan and set them aside to cool completely at room temperature. Also, keep the pan aside, we will use the same ghee and pan for making paneer korma curry.

2. To a mixing bowl, add yogurt, gram flour, coriander powder, red chili powder, and turmeric powder. Mix everything until well incorporated. Keep this aside.
3. Remove moisture from the paneer by pressing it between tissue papers. This will remove the excess moisture from the paneer and the cubes will not stick to the pan while frying.
4. Now, cut the paneer into 1-inch cubes. Add 2 tablespoons ghee to the same pan (where you fried onions), and add paneer cubes to the pan and fry from all the sides until they are golden. Once fried, remove the fried paneer cubes from the pan and set them aside.
5. To the same pan, add cumin seeds, bay leaf, cinnamon stick, star anise, green cardamom pods, cloves, and black peppercorns. Sauté for a few seconds.
