Kadai Paneer /Sauteed Cottege Cheese

Kadai Paneer is a sauteed Indian cottage cheese side dish. I presume it got its name  because its a paneer (Indian cottage cheese)  sauteed in a Kadai (Indian wok). It's an easy dish unlike other paneer dishes.And goes well with any Indian  bread or rice.
Recipe source:Rak's Kitchen
Paneer ,cubed 1&1/2 cups
Onion 2,cubed
Tomatoes 3 (small),chopped
Green and red peppers 1,cubed
Ginger,finely minced 1 tbs
Green chillies 2
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Coriander powder 1 tbs
Garam masala powder 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp
Salt As needed
Kasoori methi 1 tsp
Cilantro leaves, chopped 2 tbs
Oil 3 tbs
Coriander seeds slightly crushed 1 tsp

Heat oil in a pan/kadai and season with the coriander seeds.   Add ginger and saute for 30 seconds. Now add chopped onion,  slit green chillies  and saute till onion turns transparent.
Add the  tomatoes and add salt,add all the masala powders.Saute till tomatoes turn mushy and oil start to ooze out. At this point add bell peppers and saute for a minute, see that it reatins the colour and crunchiness
Add the paneer cubes (paneer cubes should be kept immersed in hot  slightly salted water till use) and crush the kasoori methi within you palms to powder it and add it to this. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup water and mix well.
Cook till the masala coats paneer well and the gravy is thick and  almost dry.  Finally add cilantro leaves and transfer to the serving dish.
