Paneer Mint Pulav

This is a very easy and quick recipe. I had made it for my husbands birthday, when I cooked this for my husband and guests, they said it was the BEST PULAV EVER!!

1.5 cup grated Paneer
1 cup of mint leaves
1 cup of corriander leaves
1 medium sized onion fine chopped
5 green chillies slit
1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
1 cup green peas (optional) ...I used frozen
2-3 small bay leaves
1 teaspoon cummin
1 teaspoon oil
2 cups Basmati rice
3 cups water
Salt to taste

Grind mint and corriander with little water. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a pan, add bay leaves, cummin. When Cummin splutters, add onion, ginger garlic paste and saute. Add Paneer and fry for about 2 minutes, then add mint-corriander liquid and mix for 2-3 minutes. In a rice cooker, add washed and drained basmati rice, green peas, 3 cups water, green chillies, paneer masala and salt to taste and lightly mix once. Switch on the cooker.

If this is done outside in a pan follow the same instructions and cook on low heat with pan covered for about 20 minutes.

Decorate with roasted Cashews and serve with pomegranate raitha
