Paneer bhurji recipe, paneer bhujia. A simple and easy dish made with crumbled panner and simple ingredients.
Paneer bhurji is a very simple and easy dish that goes well with chappathi. This dish is called as paneer bhujia, paneer podimas, paneer bhurji etc.
Sometimes, on a lazy day, I make paneer bhurji and have it as an accompaniment for rasam. Usually, I make it when I have less paneer at home. You can also eat it as a snack.
I made paneer bhurji recipe last saturday and wanted to take good pictures, but Gj and Sanvi were very hungry and wanted the dish right away. They were not able to wait for few minutes, so I just took few pictures quickly and served the dish to them. Next time, when I make it again, I have to take good pictures. Meantime, just enjoy this paneer bhurji.
