Paneer or Indian cottage cheese is a very versatile ingredient that can be cooked in various ways with spices and condiments to make a number of dishes. ‘Shahi’ literally translates to royal in Hindi and this recipe is exactly that. Soft, melt in the mouth chunks of paneer cooked in a rich yogurt and cream based gravy flavoured with mild spices. Shahi paneer tastes great with rotis as much as it does with hot steamed rice. It is one of the most popular paneer recipes in India and for all the right reasons.
