The last time I made some homemade panner, I used only half of it for my Paneer Tikka and the other half was sitting in the fridge, waiting helplessly to be consumed. I went ahead and made Paneer Bhurji with it. This Bhurji looks and tastes like scrambled egg, not quite but very close. I used homemade paneer but one can use store bought paneer, which is readily available in almost all Indian groceries stores. This goes well with parathas, roties and rice. I am sending this to Srilekha’s Parathas and gravies event.
- 1 ½ – 2 tbsp Oil
- 1 big Onion chopped
- 2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste

- 1 tsp Coriander Powder
- 1 tsp Chili Powder
- ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
- Salt to Taste
- ½ medium size Green Bell Pepper cut into small pieces
- ¼ medium size Red Bell Pepper cut into small pieces (I found it a little sweet and skip it the next time)

- Heat oil in a pan and fry onion until translucent and lightly golden brown.
- Add ginger garlic paste and green chilies and fry until rawness of ginger garlic paste is gone.
- Add Coriander powder, chili powder, turmeric, salt, bell peppers and tomatoes. Mix well, cover and cook until tomatoes are soft, about 2 minutes.
