Tredyfoods have come up with ready to cook masala in three variants. Kadai Masala, Chettinad Masala and Pepper Masala.


With the Kadai Masala paste, I tried making Kadai Paneer. The best part of these ready to cook masala is that this contains oil, tomato, onion, capsicum, salt and all other spices. These are in a powder form and that helps in a mess free cooking. Kadai Paneer needs chopping grinding, marinating but this Tredyfoods ready to cook masala eliminates all these steps thus enabling the user to cook thier favourite and delicious meal quickly. These ready to cook pastes are very helpful to bachelors and working woman who want to eat thier favourite and delicious meal without struggling much in the kitchen. 

The masala mix is in dehydrated form and is made in the form of pickle or thokku and is packed in no air circulation method in vaccum pack that gives a shelf life of 12 months. 

Though the name Kadai Paneer, suggests that it is to be cooked in Kadai or wok, I tried making it in pressure cooker to make it even more quicker. As we wanted a dry version, I have used very less water too. 









Ingredients:
Paneer - 250 gms
Tredyfoods Kadai Paneer masala - 1 pack (50 gm pack)
Water 50 ml
Ghee - 2 tbsp (optional as the mix already contains oil)

Method
Cut the paneer into cubes. Immerse it in hot water for about 3 mins remove and drain. (This is to make the paneer soft). In a pressure pan (1.5 ltrs or 2ltrs) add 1 tbsp of ghee, Tredy foods Kadai mix, water and mix well. Add the Paneer cubes and mix thoroughly with a wodden laddle or a spoon. Ensure you dont break any Paneer pieces and all the cubes are coated evenly. 

Add the remaining ghee. Close the pan and set for 3 whistles on medium flame. Tasty Kadai Paneer is ready.

As the Tredy food mix contains all the necessary masalas and veggies there is no trouble of grinding them. Just open the packet and add it to the paneer or mushroom or baby potato. (Non-Veg lovers can make use of this masala mix to make Kadai Chicken)

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves (optional)
