Recipe
1
Rinse 250 grams of basmati rice under running water until the water runs clear. Soak the rice in water for 30 minutes, then drain.
2
Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee in a pan, add 200 grams of paneer cubes and fry until they turn golden brown. Remove the paneer cubes and set them aside.
3
In the same pan, add 1 finely chopped onion and sauté until it turns golden brown. Add 1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste and sauté until the raw smell goes away.
4
Add 2 chopped tomatoes, 1 teaspoon of red chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of biryani masala, and salt as per taste. Cook until the tomatoes turn mushy.
5
Add the fried paneer cubes to the pan and mix well. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
6
In a separate pot, bring 1 litre of water to a boil. Add the soaked and drained rice to the boiling water. Cook the rice until it is 70% cooked, then drain the water.
7
Layer the partially cooked rice over the paneer mixture in the pan. Sprinkle a handful of chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves over the rice. Cover the pan with a lid and cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes.
8
After 25 minutes, remove the lid and gently fluff the biryani with a fork. Serve hot with raita or your choice of side dish.
