Paneer Pulao | Paneer biryani recipe | How to make Paneer Pulao | Pulao Recipes | Rice Recipes

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Paneer Pulao is a fast and simple recipe yet it is a delicious meal. This is a satisfying meal and it serves as a great lunch box recipe. If you don’t have the vegetables at hand you can skip it, it will not alter the taste of the pulao. You can serve it with raita or gravy by the side.
