This dish is super delicious. Be it Delhi or Punjab the first count is a paneer dish if you thinking to have a vegetarian meal .They really make delicious soft homemade paneer. I remember those days in winter having this Restaurant style Kadai Paneer with Roomali  at Delhi roadside Dhabas. A total Bliss!

Kadai Paneer is such a versatile dish which can be paired with steamed rice or flat bread. It goes so well with everything. You can also prepare the masala and store it for 2-3 days.That will make your job even more easier.

Though I always suggest to use fresh blend masala .But for all those busy weekdays it’s always better to prepare before hand.

Masala of Restaurant style Kadai Paneer Recipe 

When we talk about any Kadai Masala , the process differs in making the Masala paste.
Most of the Ingredients like Garlic , Ginger , Onion and Tomatoes are fried and cooled. Then a paste is prepared. That brings a smoky but subtle flavour to the dish.

Roasting the whole spices also release more flavours. Dry roasting is important, you need to do at slow flame . Keep an eye , you have to roast a little.

Capsicum is must. Kadai dish is just incomplete without this . It adds colour to your plate .

The consistency of gravy depends on your requirement. According to that add more water if required.
