Kadai Paneer

Paneer and capsicum is one of the best combination in food.If it is a paneer tikka or any other curry these two ingredients go very well both together.Kadai paneer is a popular dish in paneer recipes.This one is a good combination for rotis, pulao.My recipe is little different then the original recipe. I like to marinate paneer before 1/2 hour whatever curry I am making with paneer, because Paneer did not have any taste.
