Paneer Bhurji | Spicy scrambled cottage cheese



Easily the most delicious and simple sandwich/toast filling that I would get excited about. Pretty quick to make and it can be used as a side for so many meals, pair it up with roti and dal or jeera rice and dal to make a wholesome lunch. This paneer bhurji filling can be used in samosas, puffs, spring rolls, bread rolls and it would taste awesome. I wanted to use this paneer bhurji to make Parathas but ended up making bread rolls after a friend of mine suggested this easy option :). S and me loved those Paneer Bread rolls and ended up making more the next day with the remaining filling and it all vanished in minutes.

Ingredients

Serves - 4
Spice Level - Medium
Prep time - 10 min
Cook time - 15 min

Paneer block/Cottage cheese - 300 gm
Onion - 1 Large, finely chopped
Green chilli - 3 finely chopped
Tomato - 1 large, finely chopped
Ginger Garlic paste - 1.5 Tsp
Turmeric - a pinch
Red chilli powder - 1 Tsp
Garam Masala - 1 Tsp
Cumin powder - 1 Tsp
Coriander Leaves - 1 Tbsp, chopped finely
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Sal - as per need
Oil - 1 Tbsp


How do you do it

1. First crumble the paneer pieces well in your food processor. It should resemble bread crumbs texture - keep aside

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add jeera seeds to roast, add onions, GG paste and saute well until lightly browned. Add the green chillies and saute for a minute.

3. Add the tomatoes now and cook for a few minutes until they mash up well.

4. Add all the spice powders - turmeric, red chilli, garam masala, cumin powder, required salt and mix well. Saute for a couple of minutes.

5. Now switch of flame and add the paneer crumbs, coriander leaves and mix well until the paneer crumbs are well blended with the spice mixture. Remove the filling from the hot pan and transfer to bowl.

Note: Do not add paneer and keep mixing on high/medium heat, the paneer will harden and clump together.

Use this yummy filling to make sandwiches, puffs or samosas. Also makes a great side dish for rice or roti.
