Paneer Pulao Recipe - Paneer Pulav Recipe with step wise pictures.
Paneer pulao which is super easy to make and taste so delicious. It is simple and one of the quickest pulao you could ever make.
I have shared so many pulao in the past, this is one of the easiest one you could ever make. This takes less than 30 mins to make and this is great to put in your kids lunch box.
This is a simple pulao which is so easy to make. If you get the hang of it you will get perfect grains of rice all the time. Each rice shines through all the time.
For getting perfect pulao, make sure you follow these steps.
1)Soak basmati rice for atleast 30 mins. You can soak it anywhere from 30 mins to 1 hour.
2)Add 2 parts water to 1 part rice.
3)Boil the rice on high flame till most of the water is absorbed and your rice looks as shown in the image.
4)Cover and cook on lowest heat possible.
5)Use good quality ghee, basmati rice, because those are the ones which gives the aroma.
6)Once pulao is done cooking, turn off the heat and let the pulao stand for 10 to 15 mins before fluffing the rice.
7)Serve pulao hot with any spicy gravies.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
