The creaminess of Paneer combined with the tanginess of tomatoes and the freshness of lemon and coriander leaves makes for a scintillating gastronomic experience. When you add Red Chilli powder, Kasuri Methi, Coriander powder and ... turmeric powder to season this dish, it gives it a pleasant aroma and a rich flavour. This Paneer Bhurji recipe is an easy one and if you are a beginner at cooking, it is one of the best ones to start off with as it doesn’t require too many ingredients nor does it have any complicated steps.

So if you are planning on making a quick breakfast or planning on packing lunch, this savoury dish would be a great choice. Make sure you cook the tomatoes till they are soft and mushy and saute the onions until they get a golden glaze and mix all the spices together and cook them for a while so that the rawness of spices go away and they blend in beautifully with all the ingredients. This savoury dish pairs really well with fresh Rotis, piping hot Parathas but you can even have them with Pav or bread. You can add salt according to your taste and a squeeze of lemon for some tarty freshness. Serve hot as that’s when it tastes the best as the paneer melts in your mouth.
