A quick look into the now almost empty fridge had me scratching my head about our lunch. A couple of carrots and a bit of this and that was all that was left in the vegetable rack. And oh, the Paneer (cottage cheese) I made two days back. Cooked everything together, added some rice to it and had a simple, easy and very tasty lunch.
Cooked Rice : 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup
Carrot : 1, grated
Paneer : 1/4 cup, crumbled
Onion : 1, chopped fine
Ginger-Garlic Paste : 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves : 2-3 tsp
Lemon juice : 2 tsp or per taste
Chili Powder : 1/2 -1 tsp
Oil : 1 tsp
Salt to taste
- Heat oil, add the onions and saute till it changes color. Add the ginger-garlic paste.
- Add the carrots and saute for 2-3 minutes, till it changes color. Add the crumbled Paneer(if using), coriander leaves, chili powder and salt. Salt should be slightly on the higher side, since the cooked rice won’t have any.
- Remove from fire. Add the cooked rice, lemon juice (if using) and mix gently. Check the seasonings and adjust. Serve with the yummy Malai Mirch or with pickle.
