Paneer Bhurji

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.
