Today’s dish is one of my favorites, Kadai Paneer – a most popular dish often ordered at a restaurant. It’s a flavorful dish where paneer cubes are sauteed with vibrantly fresh bell peppers and seasoned with aromatic spices. A flavor packed dish where Paneer, capsicum & spices all comes together and create a perfect combination of veggies and spices where -all suited for one another! Tomato puree can be substituted with 1 small sized chopped tomato. I prefer to use homemade tomato puree because it blends very well with spices giving paneer a rich taste.In this recipe I have used both red and green capsicum but if you have just green capsicum on hand that’s fine. It will add the same flavor and will smell wonderful while it is cooking. This dish calls for coarsely pounded spices – whole coriander seeds and whole red chilies are coarsely pounded in mortar and pestle – which adds the right amount of heat and flavor to this dish.To give this dish that restaurant touch – cream is added but as per your preference you may pass on it. A nice blend of flavors that tastes earthy (because of cumin and coriander powder) and spicy all at the same time. So let’s begin with this Restaurant style Kadai Paneer recipe.Enjoy this dish with Dal Tadka and Homemade kulchas.
