The literal translation of shahi paneer is ‘royal paneer’, which is a very appropriate name for this dish, fit for a king. Paneer, a homemade cheese, is accompanied with a rich and creamy sauce made from cashews.

Paneer is very delicate, so take care to handle it gently or it will break up very easily. If you like a thicker or thinner gravy, just adjust the amount of water.
