paneer-fried-rice
    One of my blog readers requested for paneer fried rice recipe similar to the one they serve in saravana bhavan. Sadly I have never tasted that. I wanted to taste once and then post the recipe, but we rarely go there now a days and never got a chance to taste. So I had no idea how they make, but thought of making paneer fried rice on my own. I just made it like the regular fried rice without much veggies and with scrambled paneer. And the out come is a big hit! Aj and Vj both ate silently and finished quickly, which means its very deliciousHappy. Do try this easy recipe for your lunch box or to surprise your guests. They will be sure taking time to guess the ingredientsWinking.

Capsicum 1
Spring onion 1 bunch (5 sprigs)
Pepper 1 tsp
Sugar 3/4 tsp
Salt As needed
Olive oil 2-3 tblsp

 

Method

  1. Soak basmati rice for an hour and cook it with water ratio 1 : 1 & 1/2 for 3 whistles. Cool and separate the grains. Keep a side. Boil water and keep the panner immersed for 10 minutes. Then drain from water and crumble it roughly.1-paneer-fried-rice 
  2. Chop carrot and capsicum finely. Chop the white part of spring onion and green part separately. Heat oil in a pan and add the spring onion. Fry for a minute. 2-paneer-fried-rice
  3. Add carrot and fry for a minute, add sugar while you fry, then add capsicum and fry for another minute. Always fry in high flame. You can toss to get a smoky flavour that comes when it catches fire while tossing. If you are not comfortable, no need to do that,just fry in high flame. Add pepper and give a quick stir.Add paneer crumbles lastly.3-paneer-fried-rice 
  4. Mix well and add the green part of the spring onion and required salt. Mix well. 4-paneer
  5. Now add the cooked rice and mix properly until everything gets mixed well and rice gets heated well.5-paneer
Notes
  • You can keep the rice in fridge to maintain the shape of the rice without breaking it.
  • Add veggies of your choice along. Or even you can make it plain without veggies.
  • You can add some sauces like chilli, tomato and soy sauces while you add pepper. Add 1 tsp each.
  • You can add finely cut cubes of paneer too. The crumbling part is up to your wish, like you can crumble finely or roughly too. Depends on which texture you want.

     Serve hot with any masala gravy. We had with Aloo bhindi masala and it was yummy! perfect lunch :)

  36. I made this today. Came out quite well. The only change I would recommend is adding salt to the rice while cooking it. Otherwise you need to add extra salt towards the end and mix which could result in the rice becoming mushy from too much handling.
