Paneer Fried Rice Recipe / How to Make Paneer Fried Rice - Indo-Chinese Style Recipe

Paneer Fried Rice Recipe

My kids love all varieties of Indo-Chinese recipes and Paneer recipes a lot. So why not to combine both and made a simple yet flavor rich rice recipe, Paneer Fried Rice. Instead of adding plain paneer pieces I just spiced up paneer with dry spice powders and roasted in Cast Iron pan before adding it to the rice. This way the paneer was crispy and tasty and everyone at home loved it. You can serve the roasted paneer separately along with some grilled vegetables as a started/side.

I did not used Green onions, since my kids don't like the taste so I skipped it and added cilantro.
No carrots in stock so just used onion, cabbage, cabbages/Green pepper and for extra spicy added 1/2 of a sliced Jalapeno Pepper.
Use freshly ground Pepper corns for rich flavor and taste.
I prefer Sesame oil/Gingely Oil for making Fried Rice but you can use any desired one.
Burnt garlic gives nice flavor and unique taste, if you don't like it then just fry for few seconds then immediately add onions.

  • Marinate cut Paneer pieces with all the ingredients listed under "To Marinate Paneer" and keep aside for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile Chop vegetables and keep everything ready.
  • First, lets fry Marinated paneer pieces - Heat 2-3 tsp oil in a pan and roast the marinated paneer on all sides and once done keep aside.
