Paneer Bhurji

These days my lil one is getting interested in tasting variety of foods. So, I have to be very conscious in giving him nutritious, yet delicious food. When I had to make him an evening snack and as it was only onion, tomatoes, carrots and paneer were the ones on hand, this was the only choice for me. And yeah, he loved it. I remember watching this in a cookery show. This can be prepared in minutes and can be had stuffed with any kind of breads and will definitely taste good. So, lets start with the protein rich dish!


Paneer - 50 gms
Onion - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 tbsp, finely chopped
Vegetables of your choice (capsicum, carrots, cooked peas/corn) - 2 tbsp apprx, chopped finely
Turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala - a pinch (adjust as per taste)
Salt as per taste
Corriander leaves for garnish

To temper

Oil - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp


Crumble the paneer. Do the seasoning, add the onions and saute until transparent. Then add the tomatoes and saute for a minute.

Now add all the vegetables, salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala and cook until the vegetables are half cooked. The bhurji will taste good if the vegetables retain their crisp.

Now add the paneer and give a nice stir, so that all the ingredients blend well together. Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve as a snack with tomato ketchup or stuff in between bread/chapati's. And whoever tastes it will definitely love it.
