Paneer Bhurji | Scrambled Cottage Cheese | Paneer recipes

Paneer is one of my favs and I simply love it.. Its rich in protein and there are so many dishes you can prepare with it, but if you are in a rush and want something simple and easy to prepare, Paneer Bhurji is the one to go for.. It is a popular and delicious north Indian side dish made from crumbled paneer.  It is really simple and delicious.. Paneer Bhurji goes really well with Roti or bread.
