Paneer Fried Rice

Paneer or cottage cheese, was never my favourite food item till i started tasting the paneer dishes after i started my professional life. And nowadays i have started to prepare recipes with Paneer at home. My hubby and daughter love fried rice a lot and i thought adding paneer to the fried rice would be more tastier and healthier too. Thats how i did this one day and it came out really well.

Items required:

Beans, Carrot, cabbage, capsicum - cleaned and cut into thin and slightly lengthy pieces
Onion - cut into think pieces
Basmati rice - cooked such that each grain is seperate
Pepper powder
Soya Sauce
Paneer - cut into small cubes


Wash and soak the rice in water for 5 mins before cooking. Pressure cook it(with little salt) such that each grain is seperate. Keep it aside.
Now heat oil/ghee in a kadai and deep fry the paneer cubes first. Keep them aside.
Now fry the onions till they turn golden brown in colour. Now add the vegetables one by one and fry them in the oil nicely. Sprinkle little salt over the veg. Simmer the flame and keep frying, till the veg are cooked nicely.
Now add the rice and mix all of them well. Now add small amount of soya sauce and mix all of them well.
Finally add the deep fried paneer pieces to the fried rice and remove from flame.

Serve hot with tomato sauce.

Note: Since we dont add water to cook the vegetables, this requires little more oil than what we use normally.
