Mixed Vegetable N Paneer Tomato Rice

As usual i have prepared this rice with loads of colourful veggies which were laying in my fridge , with few chunks of paneer cheese but simmered in freshly pureed tomato sauce..Usually i used to prepare these sort of variety rice since its really very quick, fulfilling, delicious,also suits prefectly as lunch box menu also healthy since this sort of rice goes for variety of veggies, so needless to say this sort of mixed vegetable rice attracts very easily picky eaters who doesnt like veggies at all...this is my way to feed my familly members, since i have picky eater at home also when i serve this sort of variety rice , sometimes i wont even prepare any side dish...So its really very easily to finish all our left over veggies laying in our fridge, also now am adding soya chunks to my variety rice or else paneer chunks just to make much more delicious!!...

2cups Basmati Rice (cooked)
2cups Mixed Vegetables (carrots, bellpeppers,babycorn pieces,beans,greenpeas)
1/2cup Paneer cubes
1no Onion (sliced lengthwise)
3nos Tomatoes (chopped roughly)
1tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Cumin seed powder
1/4tsp Pepper powder
2tbsp Coriander leaves

Heat enough oil and add the cumin seeds, let them splutters..add the onion slices and saute until its turns transculent, now add the mixed vegetables and stir with red chilly powder, cumin seed powder, pepper powder, garam masala powder, coriander leaves with enough salt...meanwhile grind the chopped tomatoes as puree..heat few drops of oil in a small pan and shallow fry the paneer cubes until they turns golden brown, keep aside...once the veggies are half cooked, add the freshly grounded tomato puree and cook everything in medium high flame until the oil get separates...Finally add the cooked rice and fried paneer cubes to the cooking veggies , toss gently until everything get well mixed..

Serve hot!!
