Paneer Fried Rice

I love fried rice in any of its form whether it s with mushroom,egg or even chicken.Though we might have gone to so many restaurents,everyone would have a favourite one at their home town which they could never forget just like the childhood memories..Yup I too have one, called "Chimney". Our family used to go there quite often during my college days(atleast twice a month).And I love going  just to taste the fried rice served there.For the past 10-12 years the taste has never changed.The texture s so good as I have never seen it even in star hotels.It has less oil n yet not sticky. Paneer fried rice is an Indianised version of the authentic chinese recipe.It is a real feast for paneer lovers.And the kids love it too.Now here is the recipe for you...cook n enjoy :) .

Basmathi rice         - 1 1/2 cups

Method :
