Simple, quick and delicious – Kadai Paneer / Karahi Paneer From Saundhi khushboo

The recipe uses whole spices instead of spice powders. Traditionally onions and tomatoes are finely chopped and then cooked until they fall apart. Two main ingredients, Kasuri Methi (dried fenugreek leaves) and Whole Coriander Seeds play a vital role as they not only give Kadai Paneer the flavour but also distinct aroma. Using fresh ingredients and aromatic spices, Kadai Paneer or Karahi Paneer is a crowd pleaser. And what more, making Kadai Paneer is a child’s play and it takes under 30 minutes to cook this exotic dish. The crunch of bell peppers compliments the softness of paneer and the sweet and spicy onion-tomato paste makes this Kadai Paneer or Karahi Paneer one exciting dish to serve with any Indian flat breads (Whole Wheat Naan or Butter Naan or with any stuffed parathas) or plain/flavoured Basmati rice.
