Paneer Bhurji


Paneer Bhurji

 Paneer Bhurji is easy to make, flavorful  and delicious side dish for rotis/chapatis. Paneer(Indian style cottage cheese) is now becoming part of my regular grocery list. Back in Kerala we never tried cooking with paneer. My parents love spicy food and so mom never experimented cooking mild gravy dishes with paneer.The only place you get a chance to try paneer dishes is at restaurants. Now I am buying paneer regularly and hunting new recipes to try.
 Paneer burji is the easiest of all and perfect for beginners.It is made with scrambled paneer, tomatoes and flavorful spices. Healthy and protein packed this is also  the  easiest stuffing for chapati wraps. I tried this for my kids lunch box and it was a success.

Ingredients
Crumbled Paneer- 2 cup
Onion- 1 medium
Tomato- 1 medium
Green chilly chopped-2
Ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds- 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala- 1/4 tsp
Chaat Masala.a pinch(optional)
Coriander leaves chopped-a handful





Crumble paneer with your hands and keeps aside( do not use food processor). Chop onions and tomatoes into small pieces and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Roast till there is a nice aroma Add onion and green chilly saute till onion changes color. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw flavor or disappears. Next goes diced tomatoes and saute for a minute till it is cooked but not mashed. Put in all the spice powders and salt and finally the crumbled paneer. Close the lid and lower heat and allow to cook for two minutes. Finally add chaat masala and coriander leaves and serve warm with chapatis.
