Kadai paneer or Kadai vegetables are another addition to our choice when we eat out. As kids usually select a paneer dish we add this to make the side dishes stretch for four. i like the kadai in which the food is presented and when i saw the recipe in sharmis passion i went on to cook and as i had a cauliflower sitting in the fridge i thought i should try with CF only to give a break for its shelf life and also to try a new recipe. Now for the recipe

1. Dry roast the ingredients given above and when cool grind it coarsely preferably in a mortar or in a mixie.

2. Separate the cauliflower florettes and steam cook them . i used my induction steamer . I find this very handy in cooking . It saves time and also steaming in this gives me vegetables without losing their colour.
