Kadai Paneer

Kadai Paneer


1 cup Paneer cubes
2 onions
1 tomato
1 Capsicum/ bell pepper
2 green chillies
1tsp ginger
2tsp Chilli powder
1tsp Coriander powder/dhaniya powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp Garam masala
Pinch of Kasoori methi
1tsp Coriander seeds/Dhaniya
1tsp Cumin seeds/seeragam/jeera

How I made It

  • Chop onions,tomatoes and capsicum into equal cubes.  Either grate the ginger or chop it finely. Keep aside
  • In a pan heat oil and add coriander and cumin seeds. Once it splutters off add the grated ginger.
  • Then add the chopped onions till it turns out transparent.  Add green chillies and give a quick fry.

  • Now add tomatoes followed by chilli powder, coriander powder, and turmeric powder.
  • Then add the cubed capsicum (add different colors of capsicum). Try to maintain the crunchiness of the capsicum. Now add paneer cubes, mix well.  

  • Just sprinkle some water to mix the masalas along with paneer cubes.

  • Add kasoori methi and garam masala at the end. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with rotis.
