Shahi Paneer

Its a very easy recipe. I have tried it when I was pregnant of three months. That time I could not eat any fish or chicken so I have tried this recipe. Now my 5 years old boy also like it. My husband appreciate always whenever I try something new. This is one of his favourite one. I used to prefer to serve this preparation with Roti or Paratha. It goes well with Fried rice.
