Mushroom Paneer Rice

Mushroom Paneer Rice

This Sunday I was very tired and not at all in a mood to cook something lengthy. I find rice always as my saver in case of my laziness. I planned to make something with rice but there was no vegetables except for few mushrooms in my freeze. I found a small packet of Paneer lying in one corner of freeze. What to do now………

I just washed mushrooms, rice and chopped few onions and green chilies. I fried paneers and mushroms. Then I made rice using these few ingredients in a very simple way. I was little worried about how it will taste. But I was surprised when my family especially my Father in law , who does not like rice relish my dish. It was a big relief for me and everyone should try this recipe once.
