Shahi paneer (cottage cheese) is a preparation of paneer in a thick gravy made up of cream, tomatoes and spices from the Indian subcontinent.
It is mainly eaten with roti, naan, tandoori roti, rice, other breads. Shahi Paneer is made up of two different words - Paneer is the word for cottage cheese, and shahi is the term for royal (in reference to the Imperial Court). So Shahi Paneer is a royal paneer dish.
Shahi Paneer is an easy to make vegetarian dish that can be made with easily available ingredients e.g. cottage cheese (paneer), tomatoes (puree),chopped onions, ginger, green chilies, cream, cashew nuts or almonds etc.
This is a dish that is normally prepared on some special occasions. You can easily make this at home.
Shahi Paneer is creamy, aromatic and rich in taste, this is one of the popular paneer recipes that is usually cooked in parties.
Personally I like it more with roti, naan or tandoori roti. This is one of the dishes that we cook to celebrate some special day or occasion. It is loved by all my family members.
Shahi Paneer can be served for lunch or for dinner. It is also a good option for tiffin, as it is loved by kids, youngsters and elders also.
