Paneer Makhani meets Bhurji

Tonight I wanted to make Paneer Makhani. I realized I did not have milk or cream and I did not have time to step out to the store. Than I decided to make Paneer Bhurji since it does not need the cream/milk. Since I did not have tomatoes on hand, I used tomato sauce instead. I did not have peppers so I used frozen mixed vegetables. I decided to fuse the recipes and I made what I call "Paneer Makhani meets Bhurji". Its wetter than Bhurji but still not saucy like Makhani.

Serving: 5-6 servings


olive oil
400 grams of Paneer (crumble using a cheese shredder)
1 medium red onion
1 red chili
1 small green chili
1 tsp of fresh ginger
1 1/2 tbsp of fresh garlic
pinch of asofetida
salt to taste
approz. 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables (substitute for peppers)
1-2 tsp of dhana-jeeru (coriander-cumin powder)
2-3 tsp of garam masala powder
1 tsp of turmeric

Now for the Makhani touch.....

1 can of tomato sauce/puree
2-3 tbsp of butter
pepper to taste
2 bay leaves
pinch of cardmom powder
pinch of sugar

and finally my extra touch ...
2-3 tsp of tandoori barbeque powder

Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Add the asofetida, onions, chillis, ginger, garlic, tumeric, dhana-jeeru, turmeric, salt to taste, tandoori barbeque masala and garam masala, . Cook until onions are tender. Add butter and paneer and stir fry for a few minutes so paneer cooks. Add tomato sauce, bay leaves, cardamom powder, pepper and pinch of sugar.Cook for about 5 minutes on med-low. Add vegetables and and cook on low for a couple mins. Eat with paratha's.
