Kadai Paneer Masala!!!

Hi guys!!!

Paneer is an all-time favorite to both me and my husband and I tend to prepare some dish or the other with it every week. Kadai Paneer is a really quick dish and can make a great meal. It is a wonderful combination for rotis and pulao. The ingredients are not that many and the curry is prepared in no time. I have not fried the paneer cubes before using them in the curry. But if you are used to adding fried paneer cubes in the curries feel free to do so.

Now lets see the recipe.


Paneer - 250 gms
Bell peppers - 2 medium sized or 1 big
Onions - 1 big
Tomato - 1 big
Ginger - 1"
Garlic - 3 or 4 cloves
Green chillies - 1 or 2
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp (Mine is uber spicy. Adjust according to ur taste)
Corriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 2 tbsp


1. Grind the onion, tomato, green chillies, ginger and garlic into a coarse paste. Fry the paneer cubes in a tbsp of oil if going to fry it.
2. Heat the oil in a kadai and add the ground paste and saute till the mixture starts to ooze oil from the sides.
3. Now add all the masala powders and salt. Next toss in the chopped bell peppers and cover and cook for about 5 miinutes till the peppers are half cooked.
4. Now add the paneer cubes and mix well. Simmer the curry for about 10 minutes and switch off heat.

Serve hot with rotis or pulao.
