Paneer Fried Rice || Quick Lunch Box Option || Healthy One Pot Meal || Street style Paneer Fried Rice

 Hello Viewers Welcome back to prathus Food. Although we cook huge varieties coming from breakfast to dinner, but for every meal what to cook is the biggest puzzle to all ladies. Don't even ask me how much planning must be done for lunch box menu to meet the rules it must be filling, satisfying , not a routine one, new variety, tasty, healthy and it must suit for elders and kids otherwise who cooks one variety for one's box. In this learning , experimenting process I have learnt this beauty which can be prepared with less ingredients and also very quick.

       Process of cooking paneer fried rice is same as regular Chinese fried rice but a 2 mins process is extra, if we are getting a new variety, new compliment for spending 2 minutes isn't it worthy. Generally I am little scared to experiment paneer with rice varieties as little process here and there makes paneer so dry hard and taste less. To my surprise as I started with so many doubts it turned out be my family's favorite and tastes really different than regular Chinese Fried Rice. So why late Let's garb the ingredients to make Paneer Fried Rice.
