Paneer Rice


Paneer rice is a quick and easy rice especially if you have sudden guests or a potluck party. It is a delicious milky flavored rice with soft melt in mouth cubes of fried paneer and would be loved by both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. You can also add in carrots, capsicum, peas or any other veggies to make it extra special and look even more appetizing.

Ingredients
Rice- 2 cups
Water - 4 cup
Cloves- 2
Cardamon- 2
Cinnamon-  1 stick
Salt to taste


Paneer- 250 grams
Tomato Puree- 1 cup ( optional)
Green peas- 1/2 cup
Onion- 1 medium
Ginger - garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Green chilly- 4
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves to garnish


Sock rice for half an hour. Bring four cups of water to a boil and add the whole garam masala , salt and rice and cook till it all water is evaporated and the rice is fluffy.
Cut paneer into cubes and fry them lightly and keep aside. In the same pan saute onions till golden brown and add ginger- garlic paste, green chilly and saute till the raw flavor disappears. Add tomato puree and saute till oil separates for about two minutes. Finally add green peas and garam masala and a little of salt. Allow the green peas to cook till soft and drop in paneer and saute for another minute. Finally add cooked rice and stir fry till all the masala is uniformly coated. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy...
