Paneer Bhurji

Know What You Eat: Paneer is a good source of calcium, which in later years helps prevent osteoporosis. Cheese provides 25% of the calcium in the food supply.Its high in protein thus reduce the risk of cancer and its a health food for stomach disorders..
Paneer Bhurji has become my kids favorite since a while now, but I never got chance to blog it, since the minute it was in serving dish, before I know it was gone.This dish comes very handy sometimes when I have a make a paneer side dish, a heavy after school snack, very simple and easy to make yet very nutritious high in protein and superlike by all kids..The recipe calls for almost all the ingredients found in your kitchen, though addition of bell peppers and other veggies makes this dish versatile and healthy.
