As I mentioned earlier that this paneer bhurji
  • click here for recipe
  • was one of my mom's invention(trials and errors in her kitchen) many years back when we were very young. For her paneer dishes was something very new. Most the days the spoilt milk was always shown the place in the sink, until she read about an article in a book about making paneer. Slowly she started to try and make some new recipes out of it. This dish was a big hit in my house, but the quantity you get was very less for a family of more than 3. So adding some vegetables along with this dish gave some extra quantity without changing the original taste. This was mentioned by my friend Gayathri, who tried this dish after seeing my post.

    Paneer - fresh crumbled or grated ( 1 cup)
    Mixed vegetables - 1 1/2 cups chopped(I have used carrots, green capsicum and frozen green peas)
    Onion - 1 big chopped fine
    Tomato - 3 medium chopped fine
    Green chillies - 2 slit lengthwise
    Cilantro - a handful( chopped)
    Chilli powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
    Dhaniya/coriander powder - 1 tbsp
    Jeera/cumin powder - 1/2 tbsp
    Salt as needed
    Oil - 1 tbsp
    Jeera/cumin seeds - 1 tsp

    In a kadai heat oil and add jeera/cumin seeds...wait for few seconds and add onions and fry till onions turn golden brown. Add the slit green chillies and tomato. Saute and cook till the tomatoes are mashed well and cooked very well and the water almost goes off. Next add mixed vegetables and keep stirring until they are soft and cooked. Now add all the powders and mix well, then add the grated paneer. Mix well,finally add salt and chopped cilantro.

    Always the fresh crumbled paneer tastes great for this dish.
