Shahi Gobhi is a Mughalai dish, recipe source is Tarla Dalal , but it has been modified to be a healthier dish by omitting cream in it. But still, nothing lacks in this dish, and this is the first time I am making this, but my daughter has made this several times, so, according to her instructions I prepared this. I loved this, because, it tastes so different, totally  different a gravy and different spices....I am sure, I am going to make this many a times, and each time, this wonderful recipe is going to steal the show!!!
