Kadai Paneer

Paneer/Indian Cottage cheese - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1/4 cup ( sliced into cubes)
Green Bell pepper/Capsicum - 1/4 cup sliced into cubes(I used the combination of red,yellow,orange bell pepper)
Tomatoes - 1/4 cup(chopped roughly)
Turmeric powder - pinch
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - 3 tbsp(finely chopped)
Oil - 2 tbsp
For marination
Thick curd - 3 tbsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
First marinate the paneer with ingredients listed under "For marination" and leave it in the fridge for 1 hr.

After that heat 1 tbsp of  oil in the pan and place the marinated paneer one by one in the pan and roast it until it becomes golden brown on all sides and keep it aside .

In the same pan add the onion and bell peppers and roast it slightly and keep it aside.

In the same pan add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil and add the tomatoes ,once the tomatoes become mushy add tumeric,red chili powder & salt(Be careful while adding salt here since we already add salt for paneer in marination).If you need it,add little amount of water(1/8 cup) and cook it until the raw smell goes off.

Then add the paneer,oinions and bell peppers and mix it well.keep it in low flame for 5 mins.

Finally add coriander leaves and switch off the flame.

Delicious kadai paneer is ready.Serve Kadai paneer with chapathi,naan,roti & any types of pulav.
