An Easy Paneer Bhurji Recipe For Those Tiffin-Time Woes

We have a very simple recipe for delicious scrambled paneer for you to enjoy on days when you don’t feel like making too much of an effort to have a scrumptious meal.

Serves: 3

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

The Elements:

1 tablespoon oil

½ teaspoon cumin seeds

1 teaspoon ginger, grated

4-5 garlic cloves, crushed

1 green chilli, finely chopped

2 medium onions, finely chopped

1 large tomato, finely chopped

1 medium bell pepper, finely chopped

½ teaspoon garam masala

¼ teaspoon turmeric powder

½ teaspoon red chilli powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder

Salt, to taste

2 tablespoons milk

250 grams paneer (cottage cheese), crumbled or grated

1 teaspoon lemon juice


Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds.

Once they begin to splutter add the grated ginger, crushed garlic and chopped green chilli, sauté on medium heat for about a minute.

Add the chopped onion and continue to sauté till they soften.

Now stir in the chopped tomato and bell pepper, cook for about 2 minutes, once they have softened add the garam masala, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt to taste. Mix well.

Pour in the milk, after allowing everything to cook for a minute.

Add the paneer and lemon juice, mix and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Don’t forget to keep stirring; this is done in order to prevent the paneer from sticking to the pan.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with warm naan or roti or even plain!

#EatExtra: You can put this in a roti (Indian bread) and roll it up for mess-free eating, or you can even have this with toasted bread.
