veg kadai recipeveg kadai recipe | kadai vegetable recipe | vegetable kadai sabzi with step by step photo and video recipe. north indian cuisine or punjabi cuisine is known for its rich and creamy sabzi recipes. typically in vegetarian, it is either made with paneer or deep fried kofta in cream based gravy. but this recipe of veg kadai, inherits the recipe from paneer kadai with same spice masala but with mixed vegetables.

as mentioned previously, this recipe is an extension to the well known kadai recipe made with paneer. as such there isn’t any notable difference between these 2 recipes. but i personally like this recipe as you have more solid food instead of just spiced gravy. in the paneer based recipe, you may feel more of spices with less number of cubes. moreover, even in this recipe i have added paneer cubes with other veggies and hence this recipe can be termed as veggie paneer kadai recipe too. but at the same time it is completely optional and can be added if you have some spare or you like it.

furthermore, some easy and important tips and suggestions to make a flavourful veg kadai recipe. firstly, in this recipe i have shown how to make kadai masala which is later added to the sabzi. you can make these spice masala well ahead in advance and can use it as required. secondly, do not over cook the chopped vegetables as it should not loose its shape and crispiness. basically it must be cooked in a high flame so that it retains its crispiness. lastly, you can mix and match the recipe and make single vegetable based kadai recipe. for example, you can make aloo kadai, mushroom kadai or baingan kadai recipe.
