Paneer Pulao

Its one of my favorite pulao recipe. Its favorite because it takes such less ingredients and at the same time it tastes so yummy. A complete lunch item with a simple raita and some pickle.

Ingredients :

1. Long grain rice- 1 cup
2. Salt to taste
3. Oil- 4 tbs
4. Cumin seed- 1/2 tsp
5. Curry leaf- 7 to 8
6. Spring onion (chopped)- 2 tbs
7. Tomato (chopped)- 1/2 cup
8. Paneer- 1 cup
9. Green chilly- 2
10. Garlic- 2 cloves


Soak the rice in water for half an hour. Meanwhile make small cubes of the paneer. In a pan heat 3 tbs oil and add cumin seeds to it. When the seeds start crackling, add the curry leaves. Let them get fried for few seconds. When they change the color, add the paneer cubes and fry them on medium flame. Add the green chilly, chopped garlic and sprinkle salt. When the paneer cubes start turning brown add the spring onion and tomato. Just fry it for a couple of seconds or a minute and turn off the heat. Do not over fry the tomatoes as they will start to melt. 
In a separate pan heat 2 tbs oil and add the drained rice to it. Fry the rice till the water evaporates. Add some water. The water level should be just at the same level of the rice. Add some salt and cover the pan. Let the rice get cooked over medium flame. 

When the rice is almost done, turn off the flame and add the paneer mixture to the rice. Mix well and serve the rice hot.
