Paneer Bhurji is one of the easiest dishes which can be made in 10 minutes and can be used as a filling for various other dishes or can be simply served as a curry with flat bread. It is basically made with crumbled cottage cheese and enhanced by adding different spices. I have used home-made garam masala to enhance the flavor of this curry.

So, sharing a simple curry recipe which can be made with simple ingredients..
