Shahi Paneer


Who does not know about king recipe, you can find this creamy dish in every marriage, restaurant menu. If it is not there, its feel like some rich treat is missing in Indian Cuisine. This recipe is my personal favorite. I welcome every guest with this dish. The best part of this recipe is it does not requires onion and garlic. So, everyone can relish the dish without thinking too much about their reservation for certain ingredients. Requires onion and garlic still it beats the restaurant.

I use Maharaja Whiteline Powerclick+ Mixer Grinder. It is my kitchen partner and makes my kitchen task easy. It comes with an easy lock mechanism which is really helpful when in. The black beauty adds style and elegance to my kitchen and makes my life easy as it easily prepares puree/ paste of hard ingredients with the help of powerful 750W Hercules motor. It is easy to clean and use. It has a set of four jars. It has a blending jar with fruit filter that means no need to buy juicer separately, liquidizing jar, dry and wet grinding jar and chutney grinding jar measuring 1.75-litre, 1.5-litre, 1-litre and 0.4-litre respectively.
You can make anything -batter for dosa, chatpati chutney, powder dry fruits to add in shakes or any dishes to enhance your recipe benefit or to give a fruit punch to your family. It’s one appliance that does it all your work in one click.
