The word 'Shahi' is immediately associated with rich, fat-laden and royal Subzis. Here is a healthier version of the same, made with well-chosen ingredients and slight modifications to the cooking style. You will be surprised to note it retains the royal flavour! To maintain the richness and the taste of this Shahi subzi I have used low-fat milk and 1 tablespoon of cashewnut paste.

Low fat paneer and fibre rich green peas in a healthy white gravy... Without the use of any fat laden ingredients like ghee or cream and with the use of just 1 tbsp of cashew paste, this subzi is truly quick and healthy.

Soft cottage cheese and peas cooked in a onion paste. Amazingly, you cannot tell that there is no oil in the recipe. Low fat paneer also keeps the recipe healthy. Tasty!
