Restaurant style Kadai paneer recipe with video and step by step photos : – Kadai paneer is the recipe for food lovers who like their paneer in chatpatta spicy masala. This recipe is a classic North-Indian dish served in restaurants. I tried to create a replica of restaurant style version. As the name suggest kadai paneer is prepared in Kadai or karahi. Kadai means Wok (not Chinese wok but Indian wok. Somehow similar. Indian wok has more depth than Chinese one). Paneer means Indian cottage cheese.

Kadai is used to prepare many other Indian stir fried vegetable dishes and even for deep frying indian snacks like poori, pakoras ,some sweets like halwa.
To make kadai paneer, paneer is seasoned, lightly spiced and cooked with onion, tomatoes and capsicums. PCN-Kadai-paneer-dry

The recipe is roughly being adapted from Sanjeev Kapoor cookbook. The restaurants serve two kinds of kadai paneer which is kadai paneer gravy and kadai paneer dry.

The one I am sharing here today is a dry version. It goes fantastic with pulao or paratha.
