Shahi means royal, a royal paneer dish with lots of cream, cashews, yogurt. It is pretty mild gravy which goes really well with rotis, specially naan..
I made it for yesterday since few guests visited us. And everyone loved it to the core.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
