One such desi version of stir fry recipe is paneer fried rice recipe where paneer is added as the protein source.

I have posted quite a few rice recipes till now, but this recipe has to be one of the unique combo of Indian. I personally like this recipe due to 2 reasons. One it has my favorite ingredient i.e. paneer. And second the recipe is as a stir fry of paneer. I am not a huge fan of simple fried rice recipe by itself. i need some protein with it. Being a vegetarian.

Paneer Rice

Firstly, I would heavily recommend to use dry or leftover basmati rice for this recipe. If you plan to use freshly cooked rice, ensure to make it moisture free by drying it out in a plate. Secondly, with respect to the addition of vegetables, it is completely open ended. i have added the basic vegetables, but you can easily experiment with your preferences. Lastly, I have used fresh homemade paneer cubes for this recipe.
