Paneer Fried Rice

Don’t cry over a cuddled milk, new saying declared here. Initially I used to get irritated seeing Milk go waste, especially here in Indian summer. If you miss keeping it refrigerator even my ten minutes, milk start producing this thick curd type of substance.
But now I’ve learnt to deal with this. I use the thick curd thing as a paneer and the remaining water – called whey in chapati dough. If you want to intentionally prepare paneer, check out here.
So I had by chance prepared Paneer at my home, and I prepared this hybrid rice dish and christened it as Paneer Fried Rice. :)
You Need :
  • Crumbled Paneer : say 1/2 cup
  • Rice : 1/2 cup – leftover rice or cooked rice
  • Onion: coarsely chopped – 1medium
  • Green Chillies: 3-4 slit and chopped
  • cumin seeds: 1 tsp
  • turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp
  • lemon juice: of 1/4 lemon piece
  • Coriander Leaves to garnish
  • salt to taste
  • oil to sauté
You Do:
  1. In flat pan, heat oil add cumin powder followed by green chillies.
  2. As cluttering is done, follow with Onion. Sauté till light pink.
  3. Add Rice and Paneer, along with turmeric powder, lemon juice and salt. Cover and cook for couple of minutes or till paneer is cooked and rice is nicely covered with turmeric.
Done ! Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with curd, we had with Lauki Raita.
