Shahi Paneer is a popular North Indian dish made from paneer (cottage cheese) in a thick, creamy and spicy gravy prepared with tomato, onion, and bell peppers. The Mughalai touch in the dish comes from its royal, rich gravy, made with a mixture of almonds and cashews, spiced with cloves, cinnamon and garnished with raisins. It is typically served with Indian breads like naan, roti or rice dishes like pulao. It is a good source of protein, calcium and provides other essential nutrients as well.
