It’s a north Indian preparation. The gravy in this preparation is made of boiled onion paste, yoghurt and riched by cream, khoya and dryfruit. SHAHI means ROYAL in urdu. In ancient times it was served to kings of well known kingdoms. The gravy should be sweet and spicy not too salty. You can change some ingredients as your wish also. Happy eating regards @chef bb.
