Palak Paneer Rice


Rice 1 cup
Spinach (palak) 1/2 cup
Panner cubes 1/4 cup
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Onions 1 chopped
Green chillies 2 chopped
Oil 2 tbsp


Soak rice for 1 hour.
Heat oil,add panner pcs and fry till golden brown in colour.Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil,add zeera,onions and green chillies.Saute till onions are fried.
Once onions are fried,add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell of ginger goes off.
Then add chopped spinach.
Fry for 4-5 minutes.Add salt and the soaked rice.
Saute till the rice is little dry.Add enough water and cook on a low heat.
Once the rice is done,add the fried panner pcs and mix gently.
Serve hot with any raita,as a side dish/curry is not required for this rice.

Note:-Amount of water depends on the rice used.I used basmati rice and i added 1 1/2 glass of water for 1 glass of rice.
