Indian Style Simple Paneer Fried Rice (Cottage Cheese) - Cooking with my Sister

This is another recipe from my sister..She found this from a magazine and tried it when I was at home..You can see how easy it is from the ingrediants list itself..It doesn't have any fancy spice powders or anything like this…Just a simple tempering spices, onions and tomatoes..The paneer taste so fresh since it is not drenched in any of the spices..

This is a great recipe to use leftover rice or if you want anything quick to put in lunch box you can make this..Kids will love this recipe since it doesn't have anything too spicy..This taste great with any spicy gravies , we had it with kadai paneer which is again my sister's recipe..I hope you will love this and tell me if you try it..
