Paneer Burji

I. Love. Cheese.

Any kind any flavour in any way.

So it goes without saying that paneer is one of my favourite foods. 

I love paneer in any way; paneer makhani, chilli paneer, matar paneer, my mouth is watering just thinking of it!

Paneer burji is a quick and easy way to make paneer flavourful and spicy without putting much effort into it.

Serve hot with parathas and my signature coriander chutney and you've got yourself a super quick, super easy weeknight dinner.
