How to make Methi paneer bhurji

  1. Clean and chop the methi leaves. Soak them for few minutes and then wash it under running water. Drain out the excess water.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pan. Add cumin seeds, dry red chilli and Hing to the pan.
  3. Add chopped ginger and chopped garlic and saute it.
  4. Now add green chillies, chopped onion and cook for few minutes till the onion turn slight golden.
  5. Add methi leaves to the pan. Mix everything together and let it cook for few minutes.
  6. Meanwhile cut the paneer into 1 inches cubes and keep aside.
  7. After few minutes of cooking the methi will reduce to half in amount. At this stage add chopped tomatoes to the middle of the pan. Add salt and cover the tomatoes with methi and let it cook for few minutes more.
  8. When the the methi gets completely dry. Add paneer cubes and cook for 2 minutes and turn off the flames.
  9. Serve the methi bhurji with hot phulkas and enjoy

My Tip:

Instead of cutting into cubes you can also crumble the paneer. Egg can also be used to make egg-methi bhurji.
