Paneer, marinated with achari spices like fennel and nigella is tossed together with rice, which is cooked to perfection with typical spices like cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and caraway. This gives the feeling of having a nice pulao with a mild pickle, but it comes in a single package, making it convenient to serve or pack. All you need is a bowl of raita and perhaps a papad to complete this flavourful meal of Achari Paneer Pulao.

A burst of flavours in the mouth.. So many spices are used to get the achaari flavour, the paneer once marinated gave a lovely taste. I enjoyed this with a bowl of raita..
