Paneer Bhurji

To those of you who do not eat eggs at all, this version of Paneer can be a great substitute. Especially when Paneer is cooked like Bhurji, it resembles scrambled eggs. Infact, I have seen some interesting variations of curries with Eggs and Paneer on the internet. Perhaps, I will try that soon. For now, enjoy the 'paneer only' Bhurji version.

1 block Paneer, soaked in warm water for 10 min and crumbled
2 Medium Onions, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup Green Peas, Optional
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 tsp Garam Masala
2 tsps Cumin Powder
Pinch of turmeric
1/2 tsp of Kasuri Methi
1 tsp of Pomegranate Powder
2 tsps Oil
1 tsp Coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • Heat 2 tsps of oil
  • Add Onions and let it cook till translucent for about 5 min
  • Add tomatoes and cook till soft
  • Stir in the ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, Garam Masala and Cumin Powder
  • Cook for a couple of min
  • Add the Kasuri Methi and Pomegranate Powder
  • Add the crumbled paneer and make sure that the paneer is well coated with the seasoning
  • Garnish with Coriander leaves
I like to squeeze in some lime juice when I am eating just the curry but that is completely optional
