How to make Fried Paneer Pulav

  1. Wash the paneer and then cut into medium sized cubes, fry them lightly with red chili powder (don’t deep fry) and keep aside.
  2. Wash the rice and soak in water for about half an hour.
  3. Chop the vegetables, I used frozen mix vegetables pack which contains beans, carrots, corns and peas.
  4. Make a paste of one onion, 2 green chilies and the ginger. Chop the other onion and keep aside.
  5. In a pan, Add 2 tbsps oil, add cumin seeds and bay leaves. When the cumin seeds begin to fry, add the chopped onion and fry until it turns transparent,
  6. Add the onion-ginger-chilly paste, add the 'Shahi Pulao/Biryani Masala' and fry until the oil separates from the masala.
  7. Add the vegetables, fry for about 5 - 7 minutes.
  8. Drain the water from the soaked rice. Add in the soaked rice and mix with the masalas and vegetables, add salt and fry for 3-4 minutes.
  9. Add in the fried paneer cubes.
  10. Mix lightly without squashing the paneer.
  11. Add 3 cups water and pressure cook up to 3 whistles.
  12. Open the cooker, stir the Pulao gently and serve hot.
My Tip: Ratio is 1:1 (1 cup soaked rice : 1 cup water), but it is subjective to how old or new the rice is and how long the grains are etc.
