We enjoyed our shahi paneer very much. The kids did enjoy a previous batch that was very silky in texture; adults liked both versions. We understand you cook in small batches, and that is very appealing to us!
This was really delicious, simple, and very quick. Even our 10 year old who is an extremely picky eater asked for seconds! The pressure cooking made the paneer very soft, and the sauce was just the right consistency. Yum!
Tasty paneer sauce!
Wow! Another tasty sauce to add to the others that I’ve tried (better butter chicken & masala sauces). It was so easy to make too! I cooked the organic potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, and peas in 2 cups of water and let it cook a bit before I added the sauce. After the sauce was added and cooked to the consistency that I liked, I then added the cream. I served this dish with Ma’s chicken curry and naan. It was a great meal and very delicious!
