how to make paneer pulao

Though I am a Paneer lover, I have not posted much paneer recipes. This Paneer Pulao, I did long before and was in my draft. Paneer without any veggie also tastes great either in pulao or in any gravy when added. This is one such easy one pot meal, which can be prepared in a jiffy, if the paneer is readily available and tastes great.  You can try different paneer recipes here and have given some pulao recipes to try from my blog.
