Notes
Serve it with  potato subzi or Matar Paneer Bhurji.
Matar Paneer bhurji
Bhurji means scrambled, so we can call this as scrambled cottage cheese.. This paneer bhurji will give good taste and also it’s a quick stuffing to roll the chapatis as well as for naans,pooris. So you can choose it for lunch box for the kids and your family. I made paneer bhurji and the output was good.Paneer Bhurji is a most popular north Indian recipe made from crumbled paneer .Paneer can be used very easily and it can give a high protein in your diet.
