Recipe: Paneer Bhurji

Hi Everyone,

Its been long time since I have posted anything on the blog. We had been to Kanpur last week and are back to Mumbai now. Yesterday I made paneer bhurji for dinner, so thought to make a post on it. Please note that if paneer is watery, you have to squeeze it with palms to release excess water. Lets start:

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms paneer
  • 2 medium sized onions chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes + 2 green chilies chopped
  • bunch of coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • pinch of garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
  • salt as per taste
  • oil for cooking

 

Preparation:
