ABOUT Paneer-Methi Bhurji RECIPE

This Paneer-methi bhurji was standing out of all the vegetarian spread on the dining table to earn accolades from my guests. That time I dint think that it would be such a hit so didn’t think of writing up and sharing on my blog until I got a exuberant feedback. Recently when I got a craving to have it once again, I made up my mind to make it again and cook, shoot and share this time. So here is how we can do it…
