Kadai or karahi masala is made with coriander seeds, fennel, jeera, pepper, and red chili. Dry roast the spices and grind them to a coarse powder. You can prepare them as semi-dry or gravy versions. I used my homemade paneer to prepare this lip-smacking curry. I shallow fried the paneer in the air fryer which saves a lot of time. Serve it at parties and it will be surely a hit recipe.

  • Air frying paneer is a great tip. Tried it yesterday and it tasted just like shallow fried paneer. Thanks for the tip and curry also turned out great.
  • This is one of my favorite ways of enjoying paneer. I am coming over right now with some naan... Can't wait to scoop up that delicious curry...
