Paneer Bhurjee

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


A tasty version of Anda Bhurjee (stir-fried eggs), Paneer Bhurjee is also a great breakfast dish. It also makes a quick and easy dinner dish when teamed with hot Chapatis or Parathas.


  • 300 gms fresh paneer (mashed into a crumbly texture) - see below for recipe
  • 1 medium onion chopped fine
  • 1 small tomato chopped fine
  • 1 green chilli chopped fine
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • Chopped fresh coriander to garnish
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat the oil in a pan on a medium flame, till hot. Add the cumin seeds and fry till spluttering stops.
  • Add the onions and fry till soft. Now add the green chillies and tomatoes and fry till the tomatoes are pulpy.
  • Add all the powdered spices and mix well. Fry for 2 minutes.
  • Add the paneer. Mix well and cook for 2 more minutes. If the paneer gives off water at this stage, cook till the water has dried up. Turn off fire.
  • Season with salt, if desired. Garnish with the chopped fresh coriander and serve hot with Chapatis or Parathas. Paneer Bhurjee also makes a great topping for fresh, hot toast!
