Paneer Bhurji (Scrambled Cottage Cheese)

                                                                    
Paneer ( Cottage Cheese ) is a very popular dairy product particularly in the Northern India. Right now in Delhi the winter is at it's peak and many of my friends are going for long drive till India Gate just to have ice-cream !! 
When I shifted to Bangalore from Delhi I had a tough time to find quality paneer. After many hit and trials finally found a good shop which makes fresh paneer. Anyways today, I am about to post a very common dish called Paneer Bhurji ( Cottage Cheese Grind) which can be had as a meal as well as a snack. 

It is a hit with all age groups. Basically a very healthy and quick recipe which needs just 10-15 minutes to make. I use the bhurji  as a side dish for chapatis /parathas, stuffed mughlai paratha or even for sandwiches. 

Ingredients:
250 gms fresh Paneer (cottage cheese)
1 big Onion (cut into long thin strips)
1 small Capsicum (cut into long thin strips)
1 Tomato (cut into long thin strips)
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2 Green chillies
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Pinch of garam masala
Pinch of Black pepper powder
Chopped coriander leaves
1 1/2 tbsp Cooking oil
Salt to taste


Method:
In a plate mash paneer with fingertips and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and allow them to splutter. Add ginger-garlic paste, green chillies and stir. Add onions, capsicum, red chilly powder, pepper, turmeric powder and mix well. Cover and cook or 5-6 minutes. Open the lid, add tomatoes and stir fry till the tomatoes are well cooked. After that add paneer, garam masala, salt and stir fry on meduim heat for 2 minutes. Garnish with corander leaves and serve hot with chapatis or plain paratha.
