  • Add some curd, milk cream, paneer, dry fenugreek and fried onion and give it a good stir.
  • In a pan pour some ghee or butter and add the paneer gravy that was just made as a layer.
  • Sprinkle some coriander leaves and fried onion and now make a layer with rice and sprinkle the coriander and fried onions again.
  • Repeat the layering process until none is left.
  • Now cover it with a lid and place it on a Tawa for at least 15 minutes.
