Start by heating oil in a kadhai set on a low-medium flame. To this, add jeera, nigella (kalonji) seeds, black peppercorns, bay leaves, and fennel seeds. Once the seeds start to splutter, add red chilli powder and haldi. Mix well and add curd.
Next, add the lemon pickle along with salt and saute for a minute or two. Add the rice, paneer cubes, and chopped bell peppers. Toss the mixture really well, and then add 3 cups of water to it. You can add more if required.
Allow the rice mixture to boil over a low-medium flame until the water is fully absorbed by the rice.
Once done, garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot. Your achaari paneer pulao is ready to be relished.
