Preparation Method for Basmati Rice with Paneer and Nuts Recipe :

 

  • Wash the rice thoroughly by rinsing it several times. Drain.
  • Bring the water to a boil in a heavy-bottomed pot.
  • Add the rice, the saffron and the salt, and stir once to mix.
  • Turn heat down to low, cover the pot and let the rice cook for 20 minutes. Do not stir. When done, the water should all be gone and the rice grains tender but separate.
  • Melt half the ghee in a pan until it runs clear. Add the nuts and the raisins and stir until nuts turn golden and raisins plump up. Remove from heat.
  • Melt the remaining ghee in a pan until it turns clear. Add the paneer cubes and stir gently from side to side until the cubes turn light gold in parts.
  • Fold the nuts and the paneer-ghee mixture gently into the rice and fluff rice with a fork.
  • Enjoy hot.
