Shahi Paneer

Shahi paneer is a typical North Indian dish eaten with roti or naan. Shahi paneer is preparation of paneer pieces in thick, creamy and spicy gravy prepared in tomato, onion and cashew nuts paste. To give it a little spicy edge green chilies and brown cardamoms are added to it along with garam masala. Because of its richness it is usually served in parties, dinners and other occasions which require special menu. Here Ananda provides a simple and easy Shahi paneer recipe.
