Kadai Paneer

Last Updated on

There are so many variations in paneer curry
recipes with onion and tomatoes masala. But difference in kadai paneer or
karahi paneer or kadhai paneer whatever you call is adding capsicum crunchiness.
Second recipe from Punjabi cuisines is “Kadai Paneer”, cottage cheese cooked
with green capsicum, onion and tomatoes in dried form. Kadai paneer is one of
very famous and simple recipe from Punjabi dhaba, which generally serve with
lacchaa parathas or naan. But personally I love kadai paneer with pooris.
You can easily found so many different
variations in recipe of kadai paneer likewise some cook with little gravy and
some cook as dried form. For this kadai paneer recipe, first I prepare onion tomatoes
masala mixture and then cook green capsicum for 4-5 minutes, I don’t want to
loss crunchiness from capsicum so be careful during stirring capsicum and then
add chopped paneer. Garnish with green coriander if you like.
