Recipe: Kadhai Paneer ki Sukhi Sabzi |Cottage Cheese Curry- Dry

Hello bees!! A very very Happy New Year to you all. I wish you all have a memorable and sweet year ahead. Life is small, so cherish those moments which brings big-small-tiny happiness to us πŸ™‚

So, today I am sharing a recipe which is a very famous Indian main course dish- Kadhai paneer (cottage cheese curry). It has lots of spices which brings a define flavor of Indian food. Now kadhai paneer, we specially have with creamy gravy but this recipe is a dry version of the main dish.

Which definitely cut the time to cook gravy and if you are serving dal (check my restaurant style dal recipe, here ) then no need to serve another gravy item in your main course menu. Also check the recipe video on my YouTube channel, link down below-
