Paneer Bhurji is scrambled paneer or Indian cottage cheese stir-fried with tomatoes, onions, green chillies, and basic Indian spices.
It is a great protein-rich dish for vegetarians and can be made in under 15 minutes. As its easy and quick, I like to make it for my everyday meals or to pack in Lunch Box.
It is nutritious and an easy replacement of egg bhurji for vegetarians.
