Shahi paneer. Shahi is the Indo-Persian term for royal and paneer is cottage cheese. So its a royal, delicious and no onion garlic dish made of cottage cheese or paneer. A rich creamy and flavorful Indian cottage cheese curry.
I used khoya or mawa in it. Its dried whole milk which I made in home by thickened the milk in an open pan on low flame and stirred occasionally. To get the method click here.

A rich and creamy Shahi Paneer. Love it so much. Best enjoyed with some naan. I usually don’t add khoya. Will try it next time. Definitely helps to make the curry thick and creamy.
