Kadai Paneer



Kadai Paneer:

Kadai Paneer is another favorite dish among children. It is the most easy, simplest recipe that can be made from paneer. It gets its name, Kadai Paneer as it is made in a Kadai and served in deep curved pan. This is a spicy dish, that is offered by all the Indian restaurants, I gave a try at home, and the result came as a delicious treat for my family and friends.
This can be served hot with naan or parathas or simply as a starter. Here is the recipe for the delicious Indian Kadai Paneer…:)
