No Butter Kadahi Paneer Recipe


kadahi paneer
Kadahi paneer is loved by one and all. It is rich, creamy gravy with dipped paneer cubes. This delicacy makes a complete meal with plain roti, tandoori roti, or naan. As usual, I have prepared kadahi paneer, sans the creamy part. Rather, I have substituted butter and cream with almond- curd paste.

To me, my version tastes divine, even without the usual kadahi paneer ingredients. Happy me!















Kadahi Paneer Ingredients
Paneer- 250 gram
4 onions
2 tomatoes (puree)
1 capsicum or more
Ginger-garlic paste- 1tbsp
kadahi masala- 1 tbsp
curd- 1/4 cup
almonds-10
jeera- 1 tsp
kasuri methi- for garnishing
Oil- 1 tbsp
Water or milk for gravy
cinnamon (dalchini)- 1 small
salt, turmeric
coriander powder
