Paneer Pulao

We spend weekend mid-mornings passively refusing to step into the kitchen to fix lunch. Obviously each one of us has a valid reason for not wanting to get into the kitchen. Well, with a mind that never ever stops dwelling on yummy food, I am always the first to lose this battle of sorts!! This Saturday was no different.

I wanted to make something that would be done in a jiffy, but taste delicious. With loads of paneer lying around in the fridge, the easiest option was to make paneer pulao. And so I did.

I fried the paneer cubes in oil and dunked them in warm water to keep them tender until I finally used them.

This is how I made the pulao:
1. Heat oil and pop a couple of cloves, cardamom and a small piece of cinnamon.
2. Temper cumin seeds.
3. Fry slit onions, ginger-garlic paste and slit green chillies. Add a cup of rice and fry until the moisture is absorbed.
4. Add chopped coriander and mint leaves, along with a handful of peas.
5. Add salt as per taste, a teaspoon of lemon extract and enough water.
6. Pressure cook the rice.
7. Allow the rice to come to room temperature and gently mix in the fried paneer.
Voila! Paneer pulao is ready within no time!!
