Shahi paneer ( Punjabi: ਸ਼ਾਹੀ ਪਨੀਰ) is a preparation of paneer in a thick gravy made up of cream, tomatoes and spices. It is a mainstay of Indian cuisine, Nepalese cuisine and Punjabi cuisine.

It is mainly eaten with roti, chappati or other breads. Paneer is the Punjabi word for cottage cheese, and shahi is the Indo-Persian term for royal (in reference to the Imperial Court).

Similar dishes include paneer butter masala and kadai paneer.
