How to make Paneer Tawa Pulao :
Take two cups of left over rice and break lumps with your hands and keep aside. If you don’t have left over rice, then you may cook it fresh and spread it on a large tray to avoid getting sticking to each other.
Heat butter in a kadhai and fry the paneer till light golden in color.Take it out and keep aside.
In the same butter add minced ginger and garlic and fry.
Now add chopped onions and green chilies and saute them till they turn translucent and the raw smell goes off.
Add tomatoes, carrots, capsicum, peas, cabbage and potatoes and along with turmeric powder, red chili powder and pav bhaji masala and fry all together for 2 mins.
Adjust salt and add the cooked rice & lemon juice and mix all carefully to avoid rice from sticking or breaking.
Keep shuffling the rice till the masala gets incorporated with it evenly.
Add chopped coriander and fried paneer chunks into it and give everything a quick toss.
Serve hot with salad and onion raita!
