Paneer Bhurji Recipe | Paneer Recipes

Recently had some home made paneer which was in a semi crumbled state so that was the reason I tried my hands at Paneer Bhurji. I would say its vegetarian scrambled egg :) Its mild yet flavourful and goes well with rotis and rice too.
Paneer Bhurji Recipe


Ingredients:
  • Paneer - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 finely chopped
  • Tomato - 1/2 chopped (I dont like tomato pieces much so reduced you can add 1 whole tomato too)
  • Capsicum - 1 finely chopped
  • Green chillies - 1 finely chopped
  • Turmeric powder - a generous pinch
  • Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera(Cumin seeds) - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves - 1tbsp to garnish
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
Method:
  1. First crumble paneer well and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a kadai add jeera allow it to crackle. Now add onion, green chillies and tomato then saute for few mins until onions turn golden brown and tomatos are slightly mushy.
  3. Now add capsicum and saute for 3mins. Then add salt, turmeric, red chilli, garam masala powder and mix well. Capsicum should be firm and crunchy.
  4. Now add the crumbled paneer and saute for 2mins until the masalas get blended with the paneer.Garnish with the coriander leaves and serve warm with rotis or use in a sandwich.
