Paneer Bhurjii

Paneer, as I always say is important in our diet. We should try that we can eat paneer atleast once a week. When I have enough time in hand, paneer butter masala, or matar paneer or paneer tortilla wraps is my choice. However when time is less and something delicious and quick is to be made then Paneer Bhurjii, Chilli Paneer is the choice.

This paneer bhurjii is nutritious as it contains veggies like capsicum and carrot. The amount of veggies can be altered as per the taste required. You can also add some peas to enrich the flavor. I have used kitchen king masala, which can be replaced by pav bhaji masala as well.

Here I come with very simple yet delicious recipe of paneer….

Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer is a must ingredient in our diet atleast once a week. Last week I tried Paneer Salsa Tortilla Wrap, and this week it was Paneer Butter Masala. I have also posted before Peas Paneer akka Matar Paneer. Paneer Butter Masala is generally served with tandoori roti / Naan / Garlic Naan / Onion Kulcha in most of the restaurants. I love it with garlic naan. Paneer Butter Masala is paneer pieces dipped in onion tomato gravy flavored in butter. It’s a must try recipe.
