Paneer Burji | Pan-fried crumbled Cottage Cheese

Paneer is one of the most popular dishes for many, we were no exception. It has been a favourite at home, since childhood. Mum has made varieties of paneer dishes and we have happily devoured on them with chapathis, rotis, plain rice or pulav. It basically goes with anything!


Out of the very many paneer dishes that has been prepared at home, this paneer burji was one of the most  frequented dish at our home. With primarily just crumbled paneer, onions and tomatoes this dish is probably one of the simplest of the paneer dishes, quick to make yet so very tasty!


Paneer / Cottage Cheese - 1 packet (200gms)
Onion - 1 large, thinly sliced
Tomato - 1 medium, finely chopped
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tspCoriander Leaves - a little
Oil - 1 tbsp
