Shahi Paneer is the king of the vegetarian buffet. Shahi Paneer recipe originated in the royal kitchens of the Mughals. Just like other Mughlai cuisine where food was prepared with nuts, onion, cream or curd, Shahi Paneer is also prepared with cream or yogurt, spices, nuts, and onions. Shahi Paneer is a creamy textured gravy dish that you can have with Chapati, Parantha, butter naan or even rice. Shahi Paneer tastes fantastic and that is why it is most demanded or loved dish in the veg buffet.shahi-paneer-recipe-for-lunch

For all vegetarians, Shahi Paneer is the first priority in the dinner/lunch party. Whenever I go out in any restaurant or hotel with friends or family for dinner, we always order Shahi Paneer along with other dishes. Mostly, Shahi Paneer is served with Chapati (roti), Naan, Laccha Parantha or Rice.

Personally I love to eat Shahi Paneer with Naan and green chutney. This is the best and most dainty combination. This Shahi Paneer Recipe is also one of the main dishes in my mother’s menu for family gatherings.





Here I am going to share a delicious recipe of Shahi Paneer. This creamy textured Shahi Paneer recipe is full of mild flavor of every herb and spices, little tanginess and sweetness in it. Here I am shallow frying the paneer that eliminates the rawness of the paneer and gives tasty flavor in the Shahi Paneer. In this recipe, I am using cream instead of curd or yogurt (Dahi). The full Recipe of Shahi Paneer is explained below.

I hope you guys try and share this Shahi Paneer Recipe with your friends or family.
