Our favourite gal Vidhi Doshi a.k.a. @ramenhairedgirl whipped up some insane recipe of Jain paneer bhurji and it’s just so simple yet totally brilliant. So, don’t worry if you’re not so good at cooking, this recipe will leave you feeling like a professional chef! Scroll down to check out what you’ll need to make Jain paneer bhurji and how you can make it.
1.5 tbsp oil
1 1/2 tsp dhaniya (coriander) seeds
1 1/2 tsp jeera (cumin) seeds
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1 green capsicum, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp red chilli powder (adjust according to your taste)
1 tsp pav bhaji masala
1/2 tsp turmeric (haldi) powder
Salt to taste
400 gms fresh paneer (fresh paneer gives a creamy bhurji as opposed to a rubbery one)
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
Step 1: Dry roast the dhaniya and jeera seeds till fragrant. Let them cool completely, place in a bowl, and crush them coarsely.
Step 2: Heat the oil in a nonstick pan, add the crushed seeds and saute for 30 seconds.
Step 3: Add the green chilli and saute again for 30 seconds.
Step 4: Add the green capsicum and let it cook for about 2-3 minutes on a low-medium flame, making sure they don’t burn.
Step 5: Add the tomatoes, mix well and cook for 4-5 minutess, adding 2 tbsps of water if the tomatoes are burning.
Step 6: Add the garam masala, pav bhaji masala, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt, mix well and cook till the masalas are not raw anymore. You can add 1 tbsp of water here as well if the masalas are burning. Cook for 1 minute.
Step 7: Crumble the paneer with your hands very finely and add it to the masala. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. The key is to get good quality paneer that is fresh and to not cook the paneer for too long or else it’ll get rubbery.
Step 8: Once the paneer is heated, adjust the seasoning.
Step 9: Turn off the heat, add coriander immediately and mix well. Serve immediately with hot butter pavs or parathas.
