Kadai Paneer ki subzi

Paneer (cottage cheese) is  a milk based ingredient, and can be used to prepare a number of dishes. Like Paneer butter masala,  paneer pakodas (cottage cheese fritters),these dishes are yum but can be quite heavy so some times one  feels like just having the paneer (cottage cheese) prepared in a lighter and quicker way, this is just that dish and kids love it too:) great for Vegetarians!!

500 gm paneer (cottage cheese) cut into cubes
1 medium green bell pepper cut into little cubes
1 small onion cubed small
1 inch ginger piece chopped fine
2 to 3 cloves of garlic crushed
2 green chilies chopped fine
1 tsp salt ( as per taste)
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
1/3 cup water.
