Ideal food for diabetic patients and building a strong immune system. The pulao is not that much spicy. If you want a spicy pulao, then just increase the quantity of the green chilies. You can use paneer directly or roasted one. But I always prefer roasted one. while roasting the paneer cubes, care should be taken to avoid stick on the pan. Non-stick pan is preferable. If you use paneer directly without roasting there is a chance of crumble with rice. Basmati rice is most common rice used for this recipe. This pulao recipe can be served with any type of raita, dal recipes, or any gravy. Panner pulao with detailed photo and video recipe.
