Paneer bhurji topped with tender green peas

I love paneer and so always keep making something or the other to enjoy it. This paneer sabji can be often seen served on our table as it is quick and simple and also comes handy on days when there are no fresh vegetables in the fridge to help me through with dinner.  I usually pull out my milk can and start working on it while the saute is working along the other side. Pull them together and you are done in no time. Adjust spice levels to suit needs and enjoy.

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Chapathis

This is what u'll need....

Milk 2 cups
Lemon juice 1 tbspn
Onion 1 small
Tomato 1 small
Gg paste 1 tspn
Green chilli 2
Boiled green peas 1/4 cup
Red chilli powder 1/4 tspn
Garam masala powder 1/2 tspn
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbspn

Here is the stir....
  • Bring the milk to a boil and add lemon juice to it. The paneer will start floating to the top. Turn off the heat once the whey completely separates. Drain the water and keep the paneer ready. You can give it a quick rinse under running water if you dont like the flavor of lemon in it. I like it so i skip the step
  • Heat oil in a pan and add chopped onions, salt to it
  • Add gg paste when the onion turns translucent and fry till the gg paste loses its raw smell
  • Toss in chopped tomatoes, green chillies and cook till tomatoes look 3/4 th done
  • Add green peas and cook till the mixture starts oozing oil
  • Mix in the paneer and give a nice stir till everything blends well and cook for just a couple of mins. Keep the sabji moist for more flavor
  • Sprinkle garam masala powder followed by a quick stir and turn the heat off
  • Serve it warm with hot, fluffy chapathis
