Vegetable Paneer Bhurji Daba Style

Vegetable Paneer Bhurji is a North Indian Recipe made up of mainly with scrambled paneer that is Cottage cheese. I choose this recipe as it is healthy and kids friendly recipe. This recipe is high in protein. Instead of scrambled eggs and Vegetable Paneer Bhurji is best option for vegetarians. This can be taken with Bread toast, Rotis and Parathas.
