1 pack The Spice Tailor Malabar Biryani

175g paneer, cubed

  1. In medium sized pan, heat the oil and fry the dried spices from the spice sachet for a few seconds. Add the paneer and brown gently. 
  2. Add the sauce from the small sauce pouch and the spinach. Cook for 4-5 minutes. 
  3. Massage the rice in the packet to break up any clumps and pour out over the paneer.
  4. Turn the heat to its lowest, cover, and steam the rice until heated through, around 5-6 minutes.
