The very word shahi connotes richness – and you will not be disappointed because that is just what this recipe is! Loaded with cashew nuts, poppy seeds, ghee and cream, the shahi gravy has a very luscious mouth-feel that is complemented beautifully by its intense flavour, contributed by ingredients like tomato pulp and spice powders.
Sautéed paneer is just the right match for this rich and luscious gravy, as the succulence of the paneer enriches the gravy further. Indeed, the Shahi Paneer is sure to pamper your palate.
It is essential to serve this dish immediately after preparation as the sautéed paneer gets chewy after a while. However, if you are serving it later, then sauté the paneer just in time, add it to the gravy and serve immediately.
