Shahi Mutter-Mushroom-Paneer

Shahi Mutter mushroom paneer

The chill of winter makes you crave for food that rich and heavy. I had made some vegetable pulav last night for dinner and wanted to make some rich curry to go with it. I had some mushrooms and cottage cheese and decided to make a thick rich gravy for it. I’ve also added some green peas and have called the dish Shahi Muttar-Mushroom-Paneer Curry. ‘Shahi’ meaning ‘royal’ because the gravy has a good quantity of ground cashew nuts. So enjoy this rich delicious curry without giving a thought to calories.
