Paneer Bhurji Recipe | Paneer Recipes



I had around 1 litre of  whole milk with nearing expiry date. So made homemade paneer with it. Since homemade paneer will be very soft, thought of making bhurji and it turned out extremely good. We had it with Roti. It is such an easy recipe without compromise on the taste. I would say this will be the quick one of all the paneer recipes. Now I have pretty good option to make use of leftover milk.



Paneer 1 Cup
Jeera 1 Teaspoon
Green Chillies 2 Nos
Ginger A Small Piece (Chopped)
Onion 1 No (Chopped)
Tomato 1 No (Chopped)
Coriander Leaves A Fistful (Chopped)
Capsicum / Pepper 1 No
Sweet Corn 2 Tablespoons
Red Chilli powder 1 Teaspoon
Coriander powder 1 Teaspoon
Garam Masala Powder A Pinch
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 Tablespoon



Preparation Method

  • Heat oil in a pan and once it is hot, add jeera.
  • After it splutters add green chillies and ginger and saute for few seconds.
  • Add onion and saute till it turns into light golden brown colour.



  • Add Sweetcorn and capsicum and saute well for a minute.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and saute till it becomes mushy.



  • Add chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and mix well.
  • Add chopped coriander and mix it again
  • Add the crumbled paneer. If you have paneer cubes, crumble them in a mixer by a quick run.


  • Mix well and then add 2 – 3 tablespoons of water.
  • Cook till all the water evaporates and transfer them to the bowl and serve with Rotis or Parathas.



  • Vegetables can be modified based on your choice. Carrot, Peas, Beans can be used as an alternative.
