Kadhai Paneer


A very hot favourite of ours is Kadhai Paneer. As the name suggests, it means Cottage Cheese cooked in a Wok. I love recipes which have paneer & so do my sons. This recipe is super fast, easy & simple to prepare. The kasuri methi & coriander bring out the flavour of this dish. This lip smacking preparation is amazing with hot phulkas…
