Paneer pulav

I often prepare rice dishes as my daughter Sanjana is fond  of it and I find it is a better way to make her eat all the essential nutrients in a single dish.Yes,rice,ghee,vegetable,paneer all paired together.It makes a whole meal isn’t it ?This is a no onion, no garlic rice and is mildly flavoured with spices.
