Are you a vegetarian? If you are then you must be loving paneer. The chicken for non-vegetarian is equally compared with paneer for vegetarians in India. I constantly try to get some vegetarian recipes as I have couple of friends that keep requesting as they don’t take meat. Paneer is the king of vegetarian dishes, without paneer vegetarian party will not complete. Kadai paneer is one of the most popular punjabi dishes.

  • Raw coriander (1tbsp)

How to Make Kadai Paneer

  • Take a frying pan, add oil. When the oil starts boiling add the coriander and chopped onion to the heated oil. Fry it till it become golden brown.
  • Mix the finely chopped Tomato to the fried onion.

  • Cover it for an about 5 minutes When the oil come out of the tomato means it is done, add capsicum now.
