STAY NON-VEG LOVERS HERE..ALSO STAY VEGETARIANS WHO LOVES TO COOK CHICKEN..Do you people imagined this combination??For me also,It` s like a big surprise....Before going to bed daily I plans for tomarrow`s cooking in mind to make it fast for the next day....But sunday is an exceptional case some times.Last 2 weeks back  on saturday I think,while checking out expiration dates of goodies in fridge I saw a ricotta cheese(paneer) packet and also some fresh peas.It was a very long time back I made biryani and tongue forcing very much to cook some biryani or pulav. That`s it!!!!! For a twist/change added those peas and paneer cubes to pulav and cooked this super delicious CHICKEN PULAV.....

If you know the recipe of chicken pulav,then It doesn`t a big matter to cook this along with some paneer cubes and peas...Marinating paneer in less spices for some time gives very good taste.So,don`t neglect it If you have time...For a variation to the regular PULAV you can go with this..Hope you and your family may enjoy with this spicy,tasty,aromatic CHICKEN PANEER PEAS PULAV....

I already posted a CHICKEN PULAV in Mahaslovelyhome before few months..Check If you are interested..

I shifted every thing into rice cooker and it cooked automatically...;-)

Marinating paneer is Important and use spices in less quantities..

Always use cilantro+mint leaves for these kind of Non-vegetarian rice mix recipes.

We are using lots INGS here,So,It`s better to use big,wide pan..

When you use whole garam masalas in the oil, then it`s better to use less garam masala powder..

Use always fresh/home made garam masala and GGP..
