Shahi Paneer | Paneer in Rich Gravy ~ Side Dish for Naan

Sharing is caring!

Here’s another delicious rich and sinful Shahi Paneer! This was so good that I have already made this couple of times. I know this looks more like Paneer Tawa Masala, but the ingredients and method is different.
The first time I made was when I was making non veg for the rest of the family. However after seeing this, kids wanted to eat only this and not the non veg. Konda’s birthday party was quite hectic with her friends coming over and the whole house full of people. I couldn’t make the cake as I had planned on Homemade Burgers. Making the cutlets was quite tedious. All that vanished with everybody enjoying it. 
I leave you to enjoy the sinful gravy, while I take off.

  2. I had thought Shahi Paneer is the same as Paneer butter masala. But I can see significant differences in the ingredients and procedure. Your recipe looks so inviting!
