  5. Add the tomato paste and chopped tomatoes, cook till the tomatoes are mushy.
  6. Add the red chili powder, ground coriander, garam masala and salt. Mix well and cook for 1 minute.
  7. Next add the paneer with all the marinade and the chopped herbs. Mix well and add the rice along with 3~3½cups of water. Cover with the lid and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
