Shahi Paneer

This deliciously thick and creamy-done Paneer Gravy is easy to make and tastes divine. U can do it in 13 - 15 mins time and this serves 4 nos. U can use 50 ml tomato puree for a tomato.

U know, I made this last weekend and it was such a big hit. It was perhaps the best paneer gravy I made ever in my life and now your post reminds that back. I used cashew paste as well to make it even richer (coz there were some special guests asking for that). Your pic looks so tempting, can't express even. I could not take a click of my prep, but I'm glad you've posted. :)
