Palak pulao with paneer and peas- spinach rice with cottage cheese and peas

     Rice varieties are a great saviour nowadays. Its becoming a little difficult managing the house chores along with the baby. But its fun too as I try to spend lot of time with the kids.

     So one of these days, I made this mixed rice variety when I was debating whether to make some cumin rice and palak paneer as a side dish. But with the little time I had in hand, I decided to combine both of them. It became easier to feed my kid too as he is a really fussy eater, and this way I could make him eat spinach which otherwise he would have avoided. I served with some curd and chips.
