Add onion, ginger and garlic and fry until onion is slightly browned.
Now, add tomato and green chilli and cook for another minute.
Next, add coriander powder, turmeric powder, pav bhaji masala and red chilli powder and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Crumble the paneer and add it in the pan along with salt, cumin powder, garam masala powder and lemon juice and mix well.
Cook for 2-3 minutes.
Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot.
I like using homemade paneer (Indian cottage cheese) to make this sabzi. It crumbles well and is very soft in texture. However, you can also use ready-made paneer if you are running short on time.Because fresh greens and paneer go really well together, I ensure that I do not miss adding them.Greens like methi and spinach can also be chopped and added to it to make it even healthier and tastier.Add some readymade puree if the tomatoes are not ripe and juicy. It will give a very nice taste to the bhurji.Adding a bit of Pav Bhaji Masala to the Bhurji gives it a typical Mumbai Thelewala taste. Do try adding it. I am sure you will love the change.To give a smoky Dhaba style taste to the Paneer Bhurji, you can give a dhungar to the ready dish.
