Paneer Bhurji

Hope all of you had a great weekend !! Let's welcome this week with an easy and delicious dish..Paneer Bhurji. I like paneer in any forms. As we all know its a great source of protein especially for vegetarians. It's a relief that my son, who was not very fond of paneer earlier, has started eating it recently. So I try to include paneer in our diet frequently. Paneer bhurji is a wonderful dish and can be served with rice or any indian breads. I made this as a side-dish for lunch a couple of days back. There was some leftover which I used to make a filling for sandwich later that day. The sandwiches also came out great. I have added some carrots in this bhurji to make it colourful and healthy.



Serves 3-4

You need...

2 cups crumbled Paneer
3/4 cup grated Carrot
1 Onion small, chopped
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1" pc Ginger chopped
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
a little Kasoori Methi (optional)
a few Coriander leaves chopped
Chaat Masala, Lime (optional)
1 tsp Oil
Salt

To prepare...

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter cumin seeds. Add ginger and saute for few seconds. Now add onion and saute till they turn slight brown. Add the carrots, sprinkle some water, cover and cook until the carrots are cooked. 

Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt to it. Mix well and add the paneer. Combine well so that paneer gets coated with the masala. Now add the garam masala and also add kasoori methi by rubbing between hands. Finally add the coriander leaves and give a quick mix. Sprinkle chaat masala or some lime juice if you desire. Serve hot with any indian breads,  rice or also as filling for sandwiches.



Notes:
* You can use other vegetables such as tomato, capsicum, green peas etc.
* You can add some chopped green chillies too.
