Paneer Bhurji Recipe-Scramble Cottage Cheese
There are certain recipes which I make when all the vegetables in the refrigerator are over and I am bored to go the grocery store. Paneer Bhurji is one of them. I always keep paneer handy as it can be done quickly, no chopping required and amazingly delicious! It is not only immensely delicious and hearty, it’s so easy and quick that one minute you put them all together; another minute the dish is almost done:). For vegetarians, Paneer/Cottage cheese bhurji is a wonderful substitute for egg bhurji.

Heat oil in a vessel.
Add bay leaf, cumin, carom seeds and asafetida. Let them splutter.
Grate ginger and garlic over them. I generally prefer grating ginger garlic than making paste.
Add chopped green chillies, peas and onion.
Once the onion is translucent, add chopped tomato. Let it cook for 5 minutes.
