Paneer Fried Rice

I have started making fried rice regularly as the school has started and kids demand on fried rice is more these days :). Its absolutely delicious and reminds me of my childhood memories . Those were the days when we look for all opportunities to have fried rice...But I didnt know its very easy to make until I tried once.

  1. Basmati rice - 2 cups
  2. Beans - 1/2 cup
  3. Carrots - 1/2 cups
  4. Green pepper - 1/2
  5. Paneer - 2 cups
  6. White Onion - 1
  7. Green onions - 2
  8. Garlic - 6-7 cloves
  9. Pepper - 1/2 tsp
  10. Soy sauce - 2- 2 1/4 tsp
  11. Red Chilli sauce - 1/2 tsp
  12. Salt - as needed
  13. Oil - 4-5  tbsp

  1. Boil basmati rice with water(ratio doesnt matter here...but if you are particular use rice: water 1:2) in a vessel for 10 mts.
  2. Add half of the salt to the boiling rice
  3. Drain the water and cool the rice in a large plate
  4. Fry paneer with little oil in low flame for few mts till it turns light golden brown
  5. Heat 3 tbsp in a pan and add garlic 
  6. When the garlic starts turning light brown, add onions and salt
  7. Then add vegetables one by one in every 5 mts(I added first beans, then carrots and then green pepper)
  8. Cook the vegetables in low flame for 5-10 mts till the raw smell is gone
  9. Add the pepper powder and mix well. 
  10. Add the paneer to the boiling mixture and saute in low flame
  11. Now its time to add our favorite soy sauce and chilli sauce which gives the chinese fried rice flavor. 
  12. Head the mixture for 2-3 mts.  Add green onions and remove it from the flame
  13. Add the mixture to the rice and mix throughly but slowly 

Paneer fried rice is ready for attack :)
