Paneer Bhurji Curry /Paneer Bhurji Masala

We are into our final week of mega marathon and could not believe that I posted 20 recipes on time without any prior preparations.Though the theme was decided 6 months before,I finalized my recipes list just before the marathon started.

I am doing with different set of ingredients for each week as sub theme in Protein rich dishes.For this week I am sharing the recipes with dairy products such as paneer,milk,yogurt and cheese.

Today's recipe is a delicious and simple scrambled paneer/cottage cheese curry.I have already shared a dry version of paneer bhurji here.But this is a thick gravy version,pairs up very well with roti,naan,butter slathered pav and bread.

I usually pair chicken curry with bread and this paneer curry looks like an awesome replacement..

I love the idea of gravied paneer bhurji, and serving it with bread sounds delicious. the chat masala in the recipe is surely something that will give it a nice tangy taste.
