Rice Cooker Paneer Pulao

Cooking a special dish for a vegetarian guest is always a challenge. Paneer and Potato are special ingredients of the vegetarian party food.
Ingredients:
1.    Paneer – 1 cup
2.   Popatoes – 1 cup
3.   Oil – 3 tbs
4.   Onions – cut medium size – 1 cup
5.   Tomato – cut in medium size – 1 medium
6.   Green Peas – ½ Cup
7.   Carrots cut in ½ inch cubes – ½ cup
8.   Basmati Rice – 2 cup
9.   Ginger Garlic Paste – 2tbs
10. Biryani Masala – 1 packet
11.  Coriander leaves – Finely chopped - ½ cup
12. Jeera – 1 tbs
13. Green Chili – Long cut – 3
14. Turmeric – 1tsp
15.  Salt – To Taste – about 2 tbs
Process:
·         Soak the Rice in water in
·         In a pressure cooker, add oil, and let Jeera splutter
·         Add Green chilies and Onions, add a pinch of salt ( I think it helps cook the onions really fast). Let the onions brown, which should happen in 5 minutes
·          Now add Ginger Garlic Paste, Paneer, Carrots, Peas, Biryani Masala and Salt. Stir the mixture until the spices are evenly covered. Add tomatoes and simmer for 5 minutes. Now Pressure cook for 2 whistles.
·         Drain the water from the soaked rice and add to the rice cooker. Now add the vegetables mixture in the rice cooker. Add 1 and half cup of water and coriander leaves and press the cook button.
