Kadhai Paneer Recipe

When I wanted to do something easy and tasty recipe with paneer, my only choice goes to Kadhai Paneer. compare to other recipe of paneer it seems little easy and quick recipe to me. Since there are lots of option with paneer preparation,like palak paneer,awadhi paneer ,paneer corn korma,paneer peshawari,aloo matar paneer,paneer tikka masala and many more in my blog. Still I am very much positive to do some experiment with paneer preparation. So this is my latest try with paneer. Kadhai paneer a popular dish in North India . And you will find this paneer recipe in most of the north indian restaurants too. So have a look at the recipe of Kadhai paneer.  To my best level i tried to match the preparation with restaurant category. Kadhai paneer is a preparation where some colorful capsicum,onion cubes and paneer are sauteed in delicious tomato gravy.

Nutritional facts about paneer is very high. It is good source of protein, fat,carbohydrates, minerals,calcium and phosphorous too. So to get maximum energy paneer is very good diet for health.
