MW Tandoori Paneer Tomato Pulao

I totally agree whenever few of my friends says microwave cooking makes the life easier.. If i dont feel like cooking through stove top,i'll go for microwave cooking which doesnt need frequent stirring..Our today's lunch is this tandoori paneer tomato pulao which i prepared through microwave oven as i dont want to cook in stove top, this pulao goes for 30minutes of cooking in highpower and we enjoyed having this delicious pulao for ur lunch along with onion raita and some papads...This rice suits prefectly even for a lunch box menu,definitely a crowd pleaser too..Needless to say this pulao is definitely a fabulous feast for paneer lovers like me.. As ever the cooking time in microwave varies according to ur microwave oven power..
