Treat yourself to this fine subzi, made in traditional kadai paneer style, spiced up with an assortment of spices and pastes.

The addition of dried fenugreek leaves gives the Kadai Paneer Subzi its characteristic taste, while capsicum and tomatoes complement the paneer well in texture, flavour and volume too.

The tinges of ginger and garlic add a pungent dimension to this flavourful dish, which goes very well with puris and rotis.

For a complete meal combo serve along with Dal Amritsari and Jeera Rice.

  1. To make the kadai paneer recipe, in a mixer, put the coriander seeds. Make sure they are cleant well as at times there may be insects in it. 
  2. Remove the stalk and add the whole red chillies. It is advisable to break whole chillies in pieces before adding to the jar which would help in blending easily. 
  3. Blend to a coarse powder. It means to only blend a few times till you feel a coarse texture. Keep aside.
  4. In a deep non-stick kadhai, add the ghee and allow it to heat up a little. Add the ginger paste.
