Kadai vegetable/chicken/paneer is one of our favourite restaurant dish. This semi gravy dish tastes great with rotis or pulav rice.
This recipe yields you restaurant style kadai vegetable curry. Use the same recipe for kadai chicken or kadai panner by replacing vegetables with chicken or paneer. I will soon give you a new post on how to make paneer at home :)

  9. Oil - 1 tbs
  10. Salt - to taste
