How many times it has happened with you that either you do not have nicely shaped / cubes of paneer or you do not elaborate set up (or time) of making ravishing paneer dish?
Paneer bhurji (पनीर भुर्जी) is a delightful and spicy paneer dish which is quick and easy to make with ingredients that you will normally have in your kitchen. Paneer bhurji is made from crumbled paneer simmered in spicy tomato gravy. It tastes great with roti, paratha or even you can have it with a regular toast bread. It also makes a good stuffing for dosa and vegetable frankie / kathi rolls. Normally I make Paneer Bhurji from my home made paneer, which is left after cutting portions for other paneer dishes.
You can find its few variants, some are dry paneer bhurji, some with gravy, some with or with out onion. The following step by step recipe is for dry version using onion, however by all means it can be made with out onion. It is one side dish that you will find easily on an indian dhaba.
