Restaurant Style Kadai Paneer

Its everyone's wish to prepare restaurant style food at home and being a vegetarian recreating restaurant style food at home is not a tough task at all. And one such dish is this Kadai Paneer were we end up spending at least Rs.150 in a decent place and it goes up till Rs.375. My  search ended up at Veg recipes and it tasted exactly restaurant style.
What you need:
2 cups - Paneer/ Cottage cheese (cubed)
1 no - Onion (finely chopped)
2 - Tomatoes (chopped)
4 pods - Garlic (chopped)
1/2 tsp - Ginger (chopped)

8 nos - Red chilies, dry roasted
1.5 tbsp - Coriander seeds, dry roasted
1 tbsp - Kasuri methi
1/2 tsp - Garam masala 
3 tbsp - Fresh coriander (chopped)
2 tbsp - Oil
Salt as reqd
How to make:

In a kadai heat oil once hot add onion, ginger and garlic saute till the raw smell disappears.


Add the tomatoes saute till they soften, Meanwhile pound the coriander seeds and red chillies to a coarse  powder.


Once tomatoes soften add the powder mix well and let it cook for approx 4 mins.


Add the bell peppers, garam masala and salt mix them well and add paneer. Cook for 5 minutes at the end add kasuri methi and coriander leaves.


Mix them well and serve hot with rotis or naan.
