paneer-recipes-paneer-bhurj         Paneer bhurji is one of the easiest paneer recipes that can be made with less effort and time. This is the first time I am making this in spite of that its so easy. I had this at my friend Sangeeta’s place when she was here. Now its almost 3-4 years, but this is the first time I am making this at home. I loved it a lot and its simple way to make too! This can be a perfect lunch box idea, you can even wrap the paneer bhurji in roti for your kids. They would love it.
       I made this with store bought frozen paneer, you can even try making this with homemade paneer. If you have curdled milk, just try drain the milk and make paneer and try paneer bhurji, you can utilize the curdled milk in this way! You can be creative with this recipe, try adding peas or carrot, it will be nice.

Paneer bhurji recipe

Indian Dinner
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients

Paneer cubes  2 cups 
Onion  2 
Capsicum  1 
Red chilli powder/ pepper powder  1/2 tsp 
Garam masala powder  1/2 tsp 
Dhaniya/ coriander seeds powder  1 tsp 
Lemon juice  1 tsp 
Milk  2 tblsp 
Ginger, finely chopped  1 tblsp 
Green chillies  2 
Coriander leaves, finely chopped  2 tblsp 
Jeera  1 tsp 
Oil  1 tblsp 

Method

  1. If you are using frozen paneer, either thaw it until room temperature or boil water and keep immersed for 10 minutes. Drain the water completely and crumble it in a mixer(just add in two batches and give it a run)
  2. 1-boil,drain,crumble
  3. Heat a pan with oil and splutter jeera, add finely chopped ginger and green chillies, followed by finely chopped onion. Fry till transparent and add the chopped capsicum.
  4. 2-tadka,fry-onion,capsicum
  5. Fry for a minute without changing its crispiness and add coriander leaves, all the powders and give it a quick stir without burning them. Add milk, salt and cook for 2 minutes until the milk evaporates.
  6. 3-add-masala,milk,fry
  7. Now lastly add crumbled paneer and mix well. Fry for 2 minutes or until dry and add the lemon juice and mix well.
  8. 4-add-panner,fry until dry
Notes
  • If you want to add frozen peas, cook it in microwave and add it in the end of step 2. For carrots, just add it after onion and fry along.
  • You can omit lemon juice and add a tomato chopped along with capsicum.
  • I used tri coloured capsicum.
  • You can skip ginger too!
   
    Serve hot with roti or naan or any stuffed parathas too…Wrap it or just have it as a side dish, you can even eat its as such! Tastes awesome and damn easy to make!

  3. Awwww, I just threw my 1 cup of milk y'day morning that curdled when I was making my Bournvita - I didn't think I could make something out of that little amount, making a bhurji didn't come across my mind at all!
    Looks great, plus I love a 2-in-1 type of recipe:

  43. glad you are back!!! I visited and saw your post the day you posted it. But I really felt lazy to log on and comment. :-p
    I prepare it very often with fresh home made paneer in the same way including capsicums but with no milk. Sometimes, I stuff for chapthi/tortilla and enjoy them as a roll.

  46. Aparna, try crumbling more in coarse side and make sure while you crumble there is no water and drain it completely by leaving it on the strainer for sometime.Hope this will work :)

  56. Hi.. Have a doubt. Saw ur recipes kadai paneer, paneer bhurji & chilli paneer.. Basically felt all these needs no grinding, similar ingredients & process.. the way paneer is added to it differs with slight variations of sauce / masala.. is my understanding crct ?

    Pls don mistake my question. Am asking this because if I try these recipes with roti, will it look like am making the same dish?
    P.S: My hubby is fond of paneer dishes :D

  57. HI Aiswarya,

    Yes you are right, but I can tell you that all three will taste and smell different. Each has its own unique taste, flavor and texture too.

    So try and see all the three and if you feel like that you can ask me :) Anyways you may not make paneer everyday, so you can confidentally make each one at a time and let me know the feedback!
