Kadai Paneer

Kadai Paneer:

Paneer chunks with chopped onion, bell pepper, tomatoes with added spices. One of the favorite dishes from Punjab.

This recipe serves 4 people.


250 gms paneer.
4 tomatoes.
1 large onion.
1 cup bell pepper cut in thin slices.
1 green chilli chopped finely or as per taste.
½ tsp grated ginger.
1 tsp dried fenugreek leaves.
½ tsp cumin seeds.
½ tsp coriander seeds crushed slightly.
½ tsp turmeric powder.
1 tsp mango powder.
1 tsp red chilli powder.
2 tsp coriander powder.
½ tsp garam masala.
1 tsp chaat masala.
1 tsp salt or as per taste.
2 tbsp oil.
Chopped coriander leaves for garnishing.


Cut the paneer into small cubes and sprinkle chaat masala over it and set aside. Now heat a frying pan and add in it. When heated add cumin seeds, while cracking add crushed coriander seeds, chopped chilies, grated ginger, fenugreek leaves and sauté for 1 minute. Deseed and chop 2 tomatoes finely and add it to the pan. Heat for 5-6 mins till it melts. Stir it nicely and add onions, sliced pepper and sauté for 2-3 mins. Deseed and cut the other 2 tomatoes in big slices and add it to the pan. Add all the spices and stir such that it is evenly mixed. Now add the paneer (one can use fried paneer but I used it without frying) and mix so that all the spices are evenly coated on the paneer. Heat for 2 mins. Take the pan off the gas. Transfer it in a serving bowl. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve it hot with naan or simply serve it as a starter.
