Recipe of paneer bhurji is very simple but very delightful dish for all vegetarians . Preparation of this dish is same like egg bhurji. It tastes delicious and is a good source of protein too.

PREPARATION

  • Soak the paneer in hot water along with few tsp of salt for 5 minutes. When done, drain the water and crumble the paneer. This makes the paneer soft and if you are using fresh paneer, skip this process. Set aside.

Cook for 5 minutes or until done and then add chopped tomato along with chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and cook until the tomato and green gram becomes soft.
  • Now add the crumbled paneer and cook for 2 minutes. Saute well. Do not cook the paneer more as it will lose its softness.
  • If it is dry, add few tbsp of hot water and mix well.
  • Finally add chopped coriander leaves and is ready to serve.
