paneer tawa pulao recipe | street style tawa paneer pulav – lunch box recipe with step by step photo and video. street food and chaat recipes have become an integral part of Indian cuisine and recipes. traditionally these recipes started as quick evening snack meal to munch on, but has now entered into the lunch and dinner section too. one such simple and easy street food recipe is paneer Tawa pulao recipe known for its pav bhaji flavour and the use of different vegetables in it.

well, you may be already aware of the Tawa pulao recipe, but this recipe is an extended version of it. basically, in this recipe, I have added only one extra ingredient, i.e paneer, but it does add a lot of difference to the end product. moreover, adding the paneer cubes makes it more filling and rich. the recipe can also be altered by adding tofu cubes, but I would prefer to have paneer cubes to make it more authentic. also, I have added boiled potatoes which not only add the flavour and taste but also make it more carbohydrates rich. but adding boiled potatoes is optional or you can also add raw potatoes and fry them in oil. I like it fried way, but takes a longer time to cook, so boiled potatoes are much quicker. irrespective, do try these Tawa pulao variants and serve them to your friends and family.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the paneer tawa pulao recipe. firstly this pulao is a stir fry pulao and it is prepared with pre-cooked rice. it is recommended to use dry moisture free cooked rice and preferably long grain rice or basmati rice so that it looks attractive. secondly, as an alternative to the paneer cubes, you may use any other types of protein source for this rice recipe. you may use tofu, meats like chicken, fish and even mutton too. note that, meat may have to be pre-cooked before use. lastly, you can either serve the rice with a choice of raita or even with different types of dal recipes. my personal favourite is moong dal, but you can serve it with dal tadka too.
