Quick Shahi Paneer

My kids love Paneer recipes and their favourite is Shahi Paneer. The reason is it is less spicy and has a little sweet taste. In past I used to order shahi paneer from near by dhaba. Then One day I read about this easy and quick shahi Paneer recipe in a local Newspaper. I gave it a try and it was a instant hit. When I read about this contest of Chicken Vs Paneer, I thought of sharing this recipe as this is any time favorite for my kids..
