Here goes my version of Paneer bhurji
Finely chopped tomatoes – 1cup
Finely chopped peppers – 1cup
Green chillies – 3 or 4
Red chilly powder –1tsp
Garam masala – 1/2tsp
Cumin seeds – 1tsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2tsp
Asafetida – ¼ tsp
Paneer grated – 200gm
Salt to taste
Oil – 2tbsp
- Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add turmeric, asafetida, ginger, green chillies and along with this sauté onions.
- Next add peppers and fry for sometime.
- Then add tomatoes, salt, red chily powder and garam masala and mix well.
- Lastly mix together the grated paneer and simmer for few min.
- Garnish with cilantro.
Variation: There’s no hard and fast rule to be followed while making this dish. You can add any vegetables of your choice but remember they need to be finely chopped or else it doesn’t blend well with the paneer or egg. Paneer can be substituted with beaten eggs to make egg bhurji. Masalas also can be altered according to your taste.
Serving suggestion: It can be served with hot chapathis, rotis. Some prefer eating with rice and pickle as accompaniment.
Have a nice weekend!!
