    One big specialty about Kadai paneer is that unlike many other recipes kadai paneer blends like magic when tossed with fresh and instantly made kadai masala along with few veggies. It tastes just like that highway dhaba that we often come across while going on a long travel.

    Other commonly famous paneer recipes are paneer makhani, tawa paneer, Shahi paneer etc. Kadai paneer tastes best with whole wheat poori and a raita without fail.

    METHOD OF PREPARATION

    For instant kadai masala :

    In a pan just dry roast, Coriander seeds, Cumin seeds, Kashmiri Red Chilli, Black Peppercorns, salt and let it cool down, grind it to fine powder and set aside.

    For kadai paneer :

    • In a wide chatty, add oil, cumin seeds.
    • finely chopped ginger and saute until the raw smell of ginger goes.
    • Add finely chopped onions ginger garlic paste and saute till raw smell goes off.
    • Add turmeric powder, degi chilli powder and coriander powder and saute well.
    • Add tomato puree, salt to taste and a bit of water and let it cook.

    In another pan, saute onion, tomato and capsicum in large slices, add salt and saute for few minutes. No need to overcook. add paneer cubes at last to it and give a toss again

    • Transfer the sautéed vegetables to the gravy and give a good mix.
    • Add kashmiri chilli powder and kadai masala to it. also add a bit of crushed kasuri methi to it. give a generous mix.
    • You can add cream which is totally optional. adding cream will give you a slightly sweetish and creamier taste.
    • Garnish it with finely chopped coriander.

    Serve hot with poori and raita as complimentary.
    It also tastes best with navratna pulao. for recipe of navratna pulao please click here.
