Blogging Marathon# 57: Week 2/ Day 2

Theme: Food52 Contest Recipes from here

Dish: Paneer Bhurji

Today’s winning recipe from Food52 is an easy to make Paneer bhurji. This recipe is a Wildcard contest winner and it sure tastes like a winner and can be whipped up in no time.

I have made scrambled tofu but never tried scrambles paneer even though I’ve seen the recipe many times on various blogs. This recipe for paneer bhurji has veggies and spices to make it more substantial and is a great breakfast dish that can be made even on a weekday.

In the original recipe, bhurji was served with toasted white artisan bread, but I only had whole grain bread on hand, so that’s what I used. It is best to serve this dish hot or slightly warm because both the paneer and bread tend to get hard once cooled, so enjoy it as soon as it is cooked.
