Check out the recipe of oil-less twist on classic Paneer Bhurji below -

Ingredients:

  • 250 grams paneer (cottage cheese), cubed
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped (optional, adjust according to taste)

  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves for garnish

Method:

Step 1 - In a dry non-stick pan, roast the coriander powder and cumin powder on low heat for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Be careful not to burn them. Remove from heat and set aside.

Step 2 - Once the onions are browned, add the chopped tomatoes, green chili (if using), ginger-garlic paste, turmeric powder, and roasted coriander and cumin powder. Cook this mixture until the tomatoes are soft and everything is well combined. You might need to sprinkle a little water to prevent sticking.

Step 3 - Finally, add the cubed paneer and garam masala to the tomato-onion mixture. Mix gently to coat the paneer with the spices. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Adjust salt if needed. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot.
