This combination works out very well. I am a big fan of “Panner mutter masala”, that too home made. The sweetness of peas and the softness of paneer adds different feeling on each bite. A protein packed puluv. Hot or cold you can enjoy the taste. Though I follow the same ingredients for puluv, this one preparation is little different. 

Recipe: Mint, Peas, Paneer Puluv
Recipe Level: Easy/Beginner
Recipe/Post by: Viji

1 cup shelled fresh peas
½ cup paneer cubed
¾ cup basmati rice
1 cup coconut milk

To grind
1 onion
2 green chili
1 small wedge of ginger
1 bunch of mint leaves
A fistful of coriander leaves

To temper
1 tsp oil
1 tsp ghee
Cinnamon, cloves, bay leves, cardamom – 2 each

1 tbsp garam masala powder
Salt to taste

MW high peas for 3 minutes.

Fry the paneer cubes in 1 tsp oil till golden brown.

Cook the basmati rice with coconut milk and little salt in electric rice cooker. Spread to cool. 

In a skillet temper as given. Add the peas and grinded paste and saute till the raw smell goes. No need to saute for long time. Try to retain the green color and the fresh taste. Add paneer and spice powder and saute till blended. Now add the rice and saute everything blends well on medium heat. Serve hot or cold with raita of your choice. You will feel the freshness in each spoon.
