Kadai Paneer
Kadai Paneer is a very favorite dish among Indians.It is very popular.The recipe is quite easy and quick.The taste is also heavenly.My friends and family members love this dish.The aroma of the freshly grounded spices and the creamy texture of paneer and capsicum makes it a delicious one.It goes very well with naan roti(for the recipe of naan roti click here).I am sharing the recipe here.
  1. Paneer - 200 gm
  2. Onion - 1 large finely chopped
  3. Tomatoes - 3 (puree 2 1/2 tomatoes and cut rest 1/2 tomato into 4 pieces)
  4. Capsicum - 1 cut into big cubes
  5. ginger paste - 1 tsp
  6. garlic paste - 1 tsp
  7. green chilly - 4 slit
  8. cardamom - 2
  9. cinnamon - 1"
  10. cloves - 4-5
  11. kasuri methi - 1 tbsp
  12. turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  13. garam masala powder - 1 tsp
  14. salt and sugar to taste
  15. mustard oil/ refined oil - 2 tbsp
For the kadai paneer masala
  1. cumin seed - 1 tsp
  2. coriander seed - 1 tsp
  3. pepper corns - 10
  4. fenugreek seed - 1/4 tsp
  5. Red chilly - 2

Cut the paneer into cubes and soak in warm salt water till you prepare the gravy.

Dry roast all the ingredients for kadai paneer masala and then coarsely grind them.keep the masala aside.

Heat oil in a kadai. Normally paneer dishes taste very good with mustard oil.But you can use refined oil as well.

Add whole spices (cardamom, cinnamon and cloves) and stir for 30 secs.

Then add the chopped onion,ginger and garlic paste.Add little salt and fry till onions turn brownish.

Add green chilly,capsicum and tomato pieces from 1/2 tomato.Stir well for another 4-5 mins.

Now add turmeric powder and the kadai paneer masala powder.Stir for 1 min.
