It is not uncommon to see paneer being used in Chinese-style Fried Rice, but this particular Paneer Fried Rice is unusually tasty, because we have marinated the paneer. Black pepper and a couple of sauces are used in the marinade to give the paneer a truly tongue-tickling flavour. An assortment of crunchy, juicy, colourful veggies and taste-enhancers like ginger and garlic work well together to give the Paneer Fried Rice an amazing mouth-feel and flavour. When garnished with spring onions and served with Chinese accompaniments, it tastes simply awesome! Couple it with Vegetables in Hot Garlic Sauce to make a truly Oriental meal.
