Egg and Cottage Cheese Bhurji

Millions of us have kind of grown up on Egg Bhurji and Paneer or Cottage Cheese Bhurji, considering they are both well established pan-Indian home fast food dishes. A variation of it has been my favorite since childhood, put the two together and make a bhurji out of it. No turmeric is added and the paneer goes first in the wok, are two ground rules, rest all just works out on its own. I also avoid using tomatoes and use puree instead. Here I go with my recipe:

Ingredients I used:

  • 250 grams Fresh Paneer/ Cottage Cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 large Onions, finely chopped
  • 1 large Green Bell Pepper
  • 2 Green Chilies
  • 50 grams White Butter
  • 100 grams Solid Stem portion of Spring Onions
  • 10 Garlic Cloves chopped
  • One 1/2 inch piece of Ginger (finely chopped)
  • Cumin seeds
  • Kasuri Methi
  • 100 ml Tomato Puree
  • Fresh Dhania/ Coriander
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Olive oil

For 26 years I have been doing what I want to. I know I have been lucky. I don't beat around the bush. Not too much into networking. Hate those who push connections over merit. Love traveling. Quality or Quantity still puzzle me at times. Haven't turned into anything other than being me, neither have an intent to. Prefer living in present or future, but a lifelong student of history. A father. A husband. A brother. A friend. A colleague. An Indian. A Sikh. A Punjabi And above all a Dilli-walah.
