Paneer Bhurji

Very often, we get into a rut and don't know what to make for dinner. I am sure a lot of you out there know what I am talking about. At home that is quite a frequent occurence. Then we go back to our good old favorite, paneer. Paneer in any form is a welcome meal at home. But the thing is all of us look for healthy low oil recipes.
This recipe gives us all those and is a wholesome meal with phulkas. It is light and more importantly, it is quick and very easy to make.


250 grams Paneer grated
2 onions chopped finely
2 tomatoes diced finely
2 capsicums diced finely
1 teaspoon jeera (cumin seeds)
1 teaspoon oil
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
salt to taste

1 tablespoon coriander leaves


Heat oil. When hot add jeera till golden and sizzling.
Add onions and capsicum. Fry till translucent and still crunchy.
Add tomatoes and cook till they start losing their shape before they get mushy.
Add salt and chilli powder.
Finally add grated paneer and garnish with coriander leaves.
