Paneer Pulao


You know!! I was lacto intolerant until I was 1. None of the milk products could be consumed, if done by mistake it would result in high levels of diarrhea and it even intoxicated me is what mom says.. :(

Thank God! All thanks to GOD for getting me rid of it. I cant even imagine being away from milk, cheese, ghee, paneer, sweets, CURD, lassi, butter milk, ICE CREAMS and so on.. My life would have been so boring without them. I am so sorry if my statement is offending the vegans but for me life would have been hard without these because I like them so much :)

This pulao is with one of my latest interests - the paneer. The soft cubes are so delicious when they are in curries, as starters and even in rice. They take the taste of the spices from the dish and bring it out so beautifully when you bite them. :) Yummmm.

This rice is so simple to make yet delicious and grand to serve. :)



Paneer cubes - 1 cup
Rice - 1 cup
Onion - 1 large
Tomato - 1
Peas - 1/2 cup
Green chillies - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1/2 inch piece
Cloves - 3
Ghee - 1 tblsp
Salt - for taste



Cut the onion into thin slices. Dice tomato into small cubes. Split the green chillies.

Wash and soak the rice for 15 mins.

Take 1 tbsp of ghee and 2 tsp of oil in the pressure cooker and add the cloves, cinnamon piece, green chillies, garam masala and ginger garlic paste. Fry for a min and then drop in the sliced onion, peas and tomato and saute until onion turns golden brown.

Now drain the soaked rice and add it to the pressure pan too. Saute for two mins and then add 2 cups of water and adequate salt. Mix well and pressure cook for 2 to 3 whistles.

Meanwhile saute the paneer cubes by adding few tsp of oil in a pan. I like my paneer slightly crispy on the sides with soft inner part.

Once the rice is done, remove from pressure pan and mix in the paneer cubes. Serve hot.

Enjoy with onion raitha.
