Kadai Paneer ~ How to Make Kadai Paneer Dhaba Style !!

How to Make Kadai Paneer Dhaba Style – Kadai Paneer is a Traditional Indian dish made with Capsicum, Onions and tomato’s cooked together in an Indian Wok.

The flavors in this dish comes from freshly grounded spices and use of a lot of Coriander seeds. This recipe is semi dry but can also be made with Gravy. I have made the semi dry version of this recipe. To make Gravy recipe , increase tomato quantity by 1 and double the cream and water.

Kadai Paneer is best cooked in a Kadai and served with Naan or Paratha!
