Author Notes

Shahi (royal) dishes have their origins in the royal kitchens of the Mughals. The curry is a divine combination of onions, spices, nuts and cream. It can be made with meat or paneer, I added spinach to make this dish a little more vibrant and nut butter to make it Shahi. If you don’t have access to paneer, substitute haloumi cheese, it’s great.
