How to make Paneer garlic fried rice – easy paneer recipes- Easy Indian rice varieties

   I had made this rice some couple of days ago for lunch one day even before Diwali. I have not really been cooking anything different after Diwali because the sweets and savouries we gorged on during that time. But I will be certainly posting some interesting recipes soon maybe in a week or two. Till then do try making this. Its really delicious. We at home love paneer a lot, so I do add them in pulao  which I make frequently. I had had this rice variety in a restaurant some time ago and loved it. I served with boondi raitha. Its a mildly spiced rice. So if you are fond of spicy food, this may not be a recipe for you.
