Paneer & Chickpeas Pulao

I was planning to prepare some easy pulao with paneer cubes which i picked when we went to Indian groceries before a week...I really felt that store bought paneer packets are quiet easy and handy for making out any gravies or any other dishes when we are really craving for paneer dishs..I was bit lazy to prepare paneer at home,fortunately i can buy paneer packets here which wasnt that much easy before few years ago, i can definitely say that i can get any Indian spices or any other Indian veggies very much easily in Paris itself when compared few years back..Coming to the super flavourful paneer and chickpeas pulao, this flavourful one pot meal is very simple, quiet easy to prepare and delicious when served along with any sorts of raita...This paneer pulao suits incredibly for any get together or any parties and also as simple lunch box dish..This pulao is definitely very worth to try and we loved it...Sending to my own event CWS-Chickpeas guest hosted by Sukanya of Saffronstreaks & Radhika's Let's Cook-Rice..




2cups Basmati rice (cooked)
1cup Paneer cubes
1cup Cooked chickpeas
1tsp Shah jeera
1no Onion (chopped lengthwise)
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Cumin powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
Salt
1/2cup Mint leaves (chopped)
Oil

Heat enough oil in a large pan, add the shah jeera,let them crack..add immediately the chopped onions and stir until they turns transculent, now add the slit opened green chillies and chopped mint leaves, saute until the mint leaves shrinks.


Meanwhile heat few drops of oil and fry the paneer pieces on both sides until they turns golden brown, keep aside....Add the garam masala powder, cumin powder, pepper powder to the cooking veggies and toss until the spice powders get well mixed...now add the already cooked basmati rice,fried paneer pieces  to the spice and toss everything gently..

Serve hot with any spicy side dish..

I had tried different versions of pulav with chick peas and paneer separately, but never thought of combining it. Lovely idea and balanced dish.
