Paneer Bhurji

I made this 'Paneer Bhurji', sometime back and it was an excellent side dish - an instant hit at my household.

It may be at yours too! try it out then..:))

Paneer Bhurji (Adapted from here)


2 cups Paneer, thawed & grated (or crumbled)
1/2 cup Bell Peppers, finely minced. (I used store-bought fire roasted bell peppers!)
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
Salt to taste
1/2 medium Tomato, finely chopped
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tbsp Canola Oil


1. Heat oil in a saucepan and add onion & ginger garlic paste. Saute for couple of minutes. Stir in chopped tomatoes and cook until mushy.

2. Add peppers, salt, turmeric, chilli powder, garam masala and water if needed. When the mixture is almost cooked, stir in crumbled paneer. Adjust seasonings if necessary.

3. Once done, transfer into a serving bowl & garnish with fresh coriander and serve with some roti or any kind of Indian bread.

Variation: One can add cream for some rich texture.
