Kadai Paneer - Cooking with my Sister

Hai friends..How was your weekend..Hope everyone had lots of fun.

Today's recipe is going to be a special post, because it is not mine..I didn't cook it..I didn't even do anything expect taking pictures. This is my elder sister's recipe. Couple of weeks before I went to my mum's place.There she cooked everything from main course to desert for me. You may ask what I did..I just watched and took pictures..Desert was the yummiest cake ever, I helped a little in that since that was her first attempt of making it. I will post that recipe soon.

This kadai paneer was so good..I have my own version in this blog…But this one has got lots of flavours in it and everything mingled so well. You can serve this with rice or roti as you like, But we had it with paneer fried rice(my sister made it) which I will post soon. I hope you will love this and tell me how it turned out..
