It is not uncommon to see paneer being used in Chinese-style Fried Rice, but this particular Paneer Fried Rice is unusually tasty, because we have marinated the paneer. Black pepper and a couple of sauces are used in the marinade to give the paneer a truly tongue-tickling flavour.

An assortment of crunchy, juicy, colourful veggies and taste-enhancers like ginger and garlic work well together to give the Paneer Fried Rice an amazing mouth-feel and flavour. When garnished with spring onions and served with Chinese accompaniments, it tastes simply awesome!

Couple it with Vegetables In Hot Garlic Sauce to make a truly Oriental meal.

Recipe Tips for Paneer fried rice

  1. If you do not have a wok, then use a thin-bottomed pan or a kadhai.
  2. For best results use leftover rice to prepare fried rice. You can toss them in no time and they give the best results.
  3. If you are cooking rice freshly then cook in a pan rather than a pressure cooker & make them 2-3 hours prior.
  4. You can serve the paneer fried rice with a bowl of manchow soup and crispy starters like spring rolls and veg Manchurian to create a tongue-tickling Indo-Chinese meal.
  5. You can reduce the quantity of spices and cook for kids and pack it in kid’s lunch box.
  6. Paneer fried rice is very easy to pack and carry anywhere and can be enjoyed as it is.

How to cook long grained rice

  1. Soak ¾ cup of rice in enough water for 30 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Boil 4 cups of water in a deep pan.
  3. Add the soaked and drained rice, salt and ½ tbsp oil, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till the rice are 95% cooked. This will give you 3 cups after cooking.
  4. Drain the water using a strainer.
  5. Transfer to a plate and allow it to cool for 2 to 3 hours.

For the marination of paneer

  1. Take soy sauce and chilli sauce in a deep bowl.
  2. Add cornflour, salt and pepper to it. Mix well using a spoon. Cornflour helps to thicken the sauce and hence coats well to the paneer cubes while marinating.
  3. Add the paneer cubes and mix lightly. Instead of paneer, you can use tofu.
  4. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  5. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the marinated paneer, mix gently and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Do not cook it for a long time or else they will turn chewy. Keep them aside.
