Shahi Paneer: The taste of North India

Shahi paneer

Indian foods have a great charm that everyone loves them. The food has its own aroma and taste. One of my favorite North-Indian dishes is Shahi paneer. This dish is very famous in Northern India due to its amazing and unique taste. “Shahi” means “Royal” & “Paneer” means “Cottage Cheese.”

Shahi paneer is made with fresh cheese paneer, creams, onions & a variety of spices. If you want to give it a spicy feel you can add green chillies, brown cardamoms, and garam masala. It can be eaten with roti, naan or even puris.

It is a perfect dish for parties, dinners and other special occasions.
