Paneer Burji

This is one of the healthiest and easiest curry that can be made in a jiffy! This can as such become a breakfasy or used as a side for roti/paratha. 

Paneer is non-melting soft cheese made with cow/buffalo milk. It is made by curdling milk with vegetable based acid or with vinegar. Paneer is rich in protein and calcium and is used in many recipes in Indian Cuisine and also work great for many fusion recipes too!

Paneer is always kids favorite as well as adults. This protein rich meal is easy to make. This can be made with fresh paneer, but when in time constraint, just grate a block of paneer. This is what I do often to make a quick fix. Plus this is easy to use in many ways from breakfast to snack to dinner. Any meal can be this or made with this. For example, Paneer Burji Swirl Bread is a super soft bread that can be easy to make as a main or amazing with soup. Paneer Burji Naan Grilled Cheese is yet another cheesy and satisfying meal. In addition, they can be used for an easy sandwich or wrap that are easy to pack for lunch.

Paneer is very versatile to use in many recipes. Below are some quick links to try that are guaranteed for lip-smacking taste!
