Paneer Bhurji : T&T : Sailu's Food

Children like Paneer a lot. And its very heatlhy for them also. So I thought of Trying out Sailu's Paneer Bhurji. Though I had made Paneer Bhurji before it was of different version. Children liked this version a lot. A very simple and easy to prepare dish.

Paneer Bhurji is a good combination with Chapathis/Rotis. And a good one for the children's lunch box also.

And so here comes the Tried and Tasted Recipe of Sailu's Paneer Bhurji in her own words.


1 cup grated paneer

1 onion, finely chopped

1 green chilli, finely chopped

1 tomato, finely chopped

pinch of turmeric pwd

1/4 tsp red chilli pwd

pinch of cumin pwd

1/2 tsp coriander pwd

1/4 tsp kasuri methi (I left this out)

pinch of garam masala pwd

4-5 tbsps of low fat milk

salt to taste

1/2 tbsp oil

chopped fresh corainder for garnish

1 Heat oil in a vessel, add chopped onions and green chillis, saute till onions turn transparent. Add turmeric pwd, cumin pwd, coriander pwd, red chilli pwd and kasuri methi and combine. Add the chopped tomato and cook till they turn soft, approx 3-4 mts.

2 Add grated paneer and stir well to combine and cook for 2-3 mts. Add the low fat milk and toss the contents on medium high flame and see that the paneer does not stick to the vessel. The milk should evaporate. Add garam masala pwd and combine.

3 Finally, garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with rotis or bread

30th April is the last date to receive T&T : Sailu's Food
