Shahi Paneer Recipe:
Delicious creamy and mildly sweet gravy with soft cottage cheese, for all special occasions.
The name ‘Shahi’ (that’s translates to ‘royal’ in English) itself suggest that this recipe has to be an exotic one, and that is exactly what it is. A delicate cashew nut and cream gravy with soft and fresh cottage cheese, with a hint of Indian spices and a mild sweetness makes it a perfect recipe for celebrations. The Shahi Paneer recipe I am sharing had been transferred to my mom by my grandma and has been adapted a little to suit our taste buds over the years.
Now by adaptation I do not mean we have altered the sheer identity of the shahi paneer recipe, all the traditional flavours have been kept strongly intact except the sweetness that has been cut down by infusing a little extra chilli (a red whole chilli that you’ll see) to the otherwise really sweet gravy. A very sweet gravy doesn’t really work for us but in case you like it, just skip the whole red chilli part and you’ll get the real Shahi recipe to follow.
