Shahi Paneer

Shahi means “Royal” and it is indeed royal to go with rotis. Paneer is usually a common ingredient in our menu, especially north indian dishes and I love the bites of it in any curry. Usually, when you prepare mutter paneer, it needs to be fried in advance, but for this recipe there is no need to do that. Adding milk and cashew nut paste enhances the taste and indeed one of those easy ones which can be prepared in no time.
