Kadai subzis are very famous in India and you can find one or couple of them featured in the menus of most Indian restaurants all over the world.

Kadai subzis feature koftas or veggies drowned in a rich and spicy gravy. In this case, we have used a combination of mushrooms, onions and capsicums, which are sautéed and then cooked with the tongue-tickling gravy to make a really flavour-packed Kadai Mushroom Subzi.

You can make the kadai gravy beforehand, and even stock some in your deep freezer, so you can whip you delectable subzis like this within minutes.

When served accompanied with Butter Naan, rice and Dal Makhani it gives you the satisfaction of having had a wholesome and tasty meal.

It tasted gd but too spicy, 10 chillies is far to much for this recipe. It said to add all of the coarse blend into the mix so not sure if that had to be amended.
