The winter season gives you the allowance of eating calorie rich food without worrying much about weight gain, because the body burns fat easily trying to maintain its temperature. I was in a mood to eating something ‘shahi’ so the obvious option that came to my mind was Shahi paneer. I decided to throw in a few mushrooms as well so the outcome was Shahi paneer mushroom.
