Paneer Bhurji is a popular recipe made out of crumbled paneer/ cottage cheese. This dish is sautéed with veggies and with few spices. Since I love american corn, I decided to add corn and tomatoes to it and it makes the dish looks more colourful and appealing too. You can make by simply adding onions and few spices and it tastes yum too. It totally depends on what ingredients you have. Very easy to make and takes hardly few minutes.
If you have Paneer at home and you don’t want to make any fancy Paneer dish, you can try this out. Also, it’s perfect for those days when you are lazy but still wants something yummy and comforting to eat. Have it with bread toast for breakfast or with roti / paratha. You can serve it as a side dish too.
