As the name suggests, one just has to crumble the paneer and give it a Punjabi tadka. But I also like to add in some green peas. It adds to the taste as also the look.

You can serve it for breakfast with pav, or for the lunch and dinner with rotis, tandoori rotis or even naan. It goes well with almost all kind of breads.

I sometimes mix in some rice to it and make it bhurji pulav. It really tastes delicious. This is the fun of cooking, just think about the innovations and sky is the limit.
