Kadai Paneer

Srilatha Indian, Sides Leave a Comment

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.

Chole is probably one of the most popular dishes from the North Western region of India, also known as Punjab. Punjabi cuisine is robust and hearty, and this dish is that, for sure. The kids in my family all love this, and any time they’re home, chole with bhatura or puri (fried bread) is sure to be on the menu once. I have referred to many websites looking for the authentic Punjabi version of this dish, and have tweaked my recipe to make it better with a few extra spices.
