Paneer Pilaf

I came across this dish in Nupur’s blog and had bookmarked it. I have blogged about this hereThis goes for the 5th day entry of Srivalli’s blogging marathon

Basmati rice 1 cup

Cumin 1/2 tsp

Cardamom 2

Cloves 2

Cinnamon 1″ piece

Onion 1 sliced

Bell pepper 1 cut finely

Beans 4-5 cut finely

Carrot 1 cut finely

Ginger garlic paste 1tsp

Chilli powder 1tsp

Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

Garam masala 1 tsp

Tomato puree 3/4 cup

Kasuri methi 1 tbsp

Oil 2 tbsp

Salt to taste


Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds.When it splutters add the whole spices and saute.

Next goes the onion into the pan and saute till it becomes transparent. Time to add the ginger garlic paste for that lovely aroma

Now dunk in the cut vegetables and saute for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the chilli powder, turmeric and garam masala

Pour in the tomato puree and let it boil for a minute.

Now add the soaked rice , paneer, kasuri methi with the required water

Add salt, mix well

Close with a lid and cook it till done

Alternately you can directly cook this in a cooker for 2 whistles. I use this way to cook a super quick one pot meal

Serve warm with raita of your choice
