Red & Wild Rice with Cheese

We get all these amazing cheeses in WI and one of my favorites is a cheese that can be cooked / grilled. The stall at the farmer's market selling this cheese is always crowded and there is a line for tasting the wonderful slightly roasted cheese. Last month I got one of these and with a twist on the paneer fried rice, made this Cheese & Peas pulav. Turned out great!

Ingredients: Wild Rice - 1 cup, Himalayan red rice - 1 cup;  Onion - 1/2 chopped into small pieces; Cheese - 16 oz chopped into small cubes; Peas - 1/3 cup; Salt & pepper - to taste; Curry Powder - 1 tsp; Olive oil - 1 tbsp.
  • In a pressure cooker, add olive oil and once hot, add the onions and saute till translucent. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Add the peas and the cheese, cook for a few more minutes. 
  • Add the curry powder, saute for a few more minutes. Add the red & wild rice and cook for about 3 whistles
  • Stir to mix everything and serve!
