It’s summer. Today’s recipe is an easy cooler that’s healthy as well. Play with the spices and come up with something that you like the best, but stick to a few basic ones – salt, a bit of sweetener, some chaat masala, and roasted cumin powder. And of course, fresh lime or lemon juice.
Kadai paneer is a rustic dish, with big chunks of vegetables and paneer, cooked al dente, coated in a freshly blended spice mix incorporated into a semi dry gravy. Most restaurants serve it floating in a ton of sauce, everything cooked to death, with all the flavors overpowered by the ubiquitous tomato onion gravy. My husband and I have been looking for a semi dry dish, with the vegetables retaining a lot of the texture and fresh flavor, and the paneer just soft enough to chew. I finally found this recipe online, tried it once,and its a winner.

These are seriously some of the best snacks! I always thought they were hard to make, having had some of the best made by a North Indian friend, and put off trying to make them. I recently wanted to eat them and bit the bullet and made them myself and couldn’t believe how easy there were!
