Description: The literal translation is Royal Paneer referring to a dish that was served in the courts during the Mughal period.

Paneer is a traditional Indian pressed cottage cheese. In this dish, the cheese is cut into cubes and simmered in a creamy sauce. Some recipes include tomatoes making the sauce red, but traditional Mughlai cuisine lacks tomatoes since they were foreign to India at the time. Instead, they used yogurt for the tanginess to balance the sweetness from the aromatics and the cashew cream. Enjoy this decadent dish with traditional naan bread and rice.

Suggested ingredients to add:

Paneer (or tofu if unavailable), yogurt, ginger, garlic
