Cottage cheese/Paneer bhurji

This paneer bhurji is a very easy way of including paneer in your kids diet.Specially if you are a vegetarian, paneer is a very good source of protein.A tasty and yummy version for fussy kids instead of the normal paneer subzi..give it a try :)

cottage cheese/paneer
turmeric powder
red chilly powder
coriander leaves(optional)

Chop onion and tomato finely.
Heat oil or butter in a non-stick pan.
Add the chopped onion and saute.
Then add tomato, haldi, mirchi powder and salt to taste.You can add green chillies for spice, since this was for my toddler I have avoided it.
After it cooks add the paneer/cottage cheese to it. I use home made paneer but you can also use the store one.
Adjust salt and garnish with coriander leaves.
Serving hot bhurji with bread toast or just as is, will make a healthy snack or breakfast for your kids :-)
