Matar Paneer Pulao recipe + Video

Matar Paneer Pulao- delicious and easy to prepare, fresh peas and quark rice

Matar paneer is a very classic combination for preparing many delicious curries, starters and rice snacks. I like to make different kinds of rice for breakfast and put them in lunch boxes. All you need for these rice dishes is a little yogurt and lettuce.

The preparation of this pulao is very simple and fast. You don’t need many ingredients, so you don’t need to chop the vegetables. For this pulao, try to use good quality fresh paneer and fresh or frozen peas. Sometimes frozen peas smell weird, so I always blanch them in boiling water or wash them in hot water.

The addition of walnuts is optional, but it makes the whole thing pleasant and rich. Serve this dish of matar pulao with tadke wala boondi raita and a fresh salad of your choice.
