Shahi Paneer Recipe -- How to make Shahi Paneer Recipe


Shahi Paneer
Shahi paneer -- Paneer lovers make a beeline for this dish.  A very mild and tasty side dish for roti and rice also.
When I have the habit of buying paneer from stores, the pack contains one recipe. If it is interested I will try to make it. Shahi paneer is one such kind of recipe.  Whenever I prepare this curry kids love it very much. 
Once I started making paneer at home, one batch of paneer cubes are meant to make this curry. Some times I use entire paneer for this dish only. 
As the name says paneer is the main ingredient. Paneer is cooked in a gravy made with grinding tomato, onion, green chilli, ginger and garlic. Shahi is the term for royal, so the curry is made with royal ingredients like cashew nuts, raisins.
