Paneer Pulao

It is one of the most easiest dish one to cook.The left over rice can also be used to make this dish. I make it quite often as my kids loved  it most and also it is very easy to pack for the lunch..
Paneer as everyone know is a rich source of calcium and protein.Some kids love to have the paneer just as they are...This dish is not very spicy and apt for the kids and sometimes for us also.There may be variations in the masalas one add.I had added the powders which are kids friendly and attract them to finish it off without leaving anything behind..
