Mushroom,Carrot & Paneer Masala Rice

Needless to say i love one pot meals and i never stopped making variety of rice using most of the time with veggies just to feed my teddies easily, so that they can enjoy their rice dish without saying no, if i add few paneer cubes to the rice, i know very well they will definitely their whole plate without any hesitation..Whenever i prepare paneer at home i used to freeze them for further use just for making these sort of masala rice, as those frozen paneer cubes will be definitely handy while making these sort of quick fix meals..Coming to this masala rice, i just combined my daughter's favourite veggies carrots and mushrooms with paneer which i prepared using simply with cooked rice and spiced up with pav bhaji masala powder and garam masala powder..This rice gets ready really very quick which suits prefect even for lunch box menu..

Mushroom,carrot & Paneer masala rice

2cups Cooked rice
2nos Carrots (chopped)
1cup Mushrooms (chopped)
1cup Paneer (cubed)

2nos Green chillies (slit opened)

1tsp Pav bhaji masala powder
1/4tsp Pepperpowder
1tsp Garam masala powder
