  • Once done, drop the paneer in a bowl of cold water to make them soft. Remove and set aside.
  • Meanwhile in a skillet, add 1/2 tsp oil, saute cumin, chillies, bay leaf, cardamom, cloves, onions and garlic with some salt until onions get soft.
  • Add the drained rice and saute until the rice gets translucent.
  • Add 2 cups of water, close the lid and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • When the rice is cooked, add the paneer, peas and cashews and toss them altogether.
  • Just before serving add cilantro and mint, give it a toss and serve hot.
  • Any spicy side dish would work very well with this rice.
