Paneer bhurji

This is an extremely popular dish as it tastes terrific and is extremely easy to prepare. Paneer is very easily available in the market and you need to get paneer that crumbles easily. I prefer making my own paneer as it is very easy to do so and you know what has gone into your paneer. I will find any excuse to use turmeric so when I boil the milk to make paneer I add half a spoon of turmeric powder to it so I get this beautiful golden paneer.

Crumbled paneer 400 gm
Onion – 1 (diced small)
Tomatoes – 2-3 (diced)
Ginger – 1 tsp grated
Green chillies – 2 (chopped fine)

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Kasturi methi – 1 tsp crushed
