      Title: Paneer basmati pilaf--paneer pulao
 Categories: Indian, Rice
      Yield: 8 Servings
           Stephen Ceideburg
      2 c  Basmati rice
      8 oz Paneer (see recipe)
      4 tb Light vegetable oil
    1/2 c  Cauliflower florets
      1 c  Diagonally sliced carrots
      1 c  Chopped red or green bell
      2 tb Cashew halves
      2 tb Raisins
      2    Bay leaves
      1    Inch piece cinnamon stick
      8    Whole cloves
    1/2 ts Black peppercorns
      3 c  Water
    3/4 c  Canned tomato sauce
      2 ts Salt
  In the traditional version of this dish, the rice, paneer and
  vegetables all cook together. I like the vegetables to remain
  crunchy, however, so I cook them separately, then stir them into the
  rice toward the end of its cooking time. Serve this subtle pilaf lamb
  chops or spicy stews.
  Wash rice thoroughly. Place in a bowl, cover with water and let soak
       15    minutes. Drain.
  Cut paneer into cubes. Brush with 1/2 tablespoon of the oil and broil
        2    minutes per side. Set aside.
  Heat remaining oil in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add
  cauliflower, carrots and peppers.
  Stir-fry for 5 minutes, or until edges of peppers start to brown.
  Remove with slotted spoon and set aside.
  Reduce heat to medium. Add cashews and fry until light golden; remove
  and set aside. Add raisins and fry until plump; remove.
  Add whole spices to the pan. Stir and cook 1 minute.
  Add rice, increase heat to medium-high, and stir fry until rice is
  well coated with oil and begins to glisten, about 5 minutes. Add
  water, tomato sauce and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to
  low, cover, and simmer for 12 minutes. Uncover and gently stir in
  vegetables and paneer,
  Cover and cook 5 minutes longer.
  Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 10 minutes,
  Fluff rice gently with a fork and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish
  with fried raisins and cashews.
