Kadai Paneer Recipe is a delicious North Indian dish that is made from fresh homemade paneer and sauteed with Green Bell Peppers and dried fenugreek leaves. Cardamom is crushed and added to this Curry, which gives it a nice taste and flavour.

When you have the Paneer, all you need are a few spices and wok also known as a Kadai. The capsicum and the onions are stir fried on high heat and then the tomatoes are added in to give it a nice moisture.

I typically like to grate my tomatoes for the Kadai Paneer recipe, but you can add it chunks as well.

Serve the Kadai Paneer Recipe along with Dal TadkaPhulka and Paneer Pulav for a weekend dinner. You can also serve Sooji Halwa at the end for desserts.
