Have you ever been to a typical North Indian restaurant and you haven’t seen Kadhai Paneer or Kadhai Chicken on the menu? We neither. The word “Kadhai” refers to a wok or heavy-bottomed saucepan, in which these dishes are made with heaps of ground spices and vegetables like onion, peppers, and tomatoes. It is thrown so many times with all the masalas that the dish often gets a nice reddish brown shade. Speaking of masalas, these dishes thrive on the uses of spices and the mixture of vegetables which are there not only for the flavor but also for their juiciness and crunch. You can add anything to this masala; chicken and paneer are usual suspects. You can also add mushrooms to this masala and have your own “ Kadhai mushroom ”. This recipe is ideal for a delicious lunch or dinner. You may have used mushrooms in your salads, omelets, and pasta – but its texture is such that it pairs really well with any kitchen.
