Easy Paneer Pulao for Kids Lunch Box

Easy Paneer Pulao

Easy Paneer Pulao is a great dish to make when you are planning to pack Lunch for your Kids. While I have been packing lunch for my kids ever since Konda started her school, off late it becomes little stressful with kids becoming very picky eaters. I like to work around a menu with preplanned dishes in mind.

I haven’t been able to have a proper plan for cooking on time along with regular cooking, which means I haven’t been on time to post for the BM weeks. I have just started my September cooking and that has me really hooked to it. While in all that, planning something new for the kids, slipped my mind. So anything with rice is an easy one to manage, especially if it has paneer, I am sure they will love it.

So here’s one for my Kid’s Delight event, guest hosted by Priya Srinivasan, themed on Kids Lunch Box Recipes. This weekend we were traveling and Konda stayed back with Amma. Amma managed her school lunch with this easy and quick Paneer dish. The next two days are going to be similar ones, all clicked with my phone. So excuse the pictures if they are different!

We are starting our BM#79, week 2. I skipped doing it for week 1 as I completely forgot that I will be traveling and nothing was ready. Managed to do these for this week.
