Paneer Bhurji

It was a rainy Sunday and I had relatives over. We were going to have aamras and the paraphernalia like dhoklas, moong dal, etc. I decided to make chatpata paneer bhurji to go with the meal. I must say, it was heavenly. I made it with Rasoi Magic Masala for Paneer Bhurji. The spices complimented paneer so well.
If you don't want to use that masala, you can use garam masala also. I used it for an uncle who doesnt eat onions and it turned out fab as well.

Recipe:Serves 6

Paneer- 500g (I used Malai Paneer)
1 medium sized tomato, finely chopped
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 medium sized green capsicum, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
2-3 tbsp oil
Rasoi Magic Masala, 1 pack mixed in 1/2 cup milk or 1 tbsp garam masala
If not using rasoi magic masala, you may want to add 1 tsp red chilli powder,
1/2 tsp turmeric and 1/2 tsp dhania-jeera powder. Also you can add cashew powder to garam masala.
2-3 tbsp water
Salt to taste.(if required)
2 tbsp Finely chopped coriander
1. Crush paneer with clean hands till it crumbles. Do not press to hard if it's malai paneer or it will
become like a paste.
2. Take oil in a pan and fry the onions till light pink. Now add chopped capsicum and tomato.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes.
3. Add the masala paste and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes.
4. Now add crushed paneer and mix till masala nicely coats paneer.
5. Add chopped coriander and give a stir. Switch off the gas.
6. Serve hot with soft chapatis or paratha and some garden fresh salad on the side.

It melts in your mouth and the flavour oozes out with each bite. And it is really simple to make!

And yes, it tastes heavenly with aamras :)
