Paneer Bhurji

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making perfect paneer bhurji. Firstly, thaw paneer naturally. If you don’t have enough time to thaw, then immerse the paneer cubes in hot water for 10 mins. Then drain and squeeze it. Finally, don’t cook the paneer bhurji for a long time. Just 2 mins are enough. because if you cook for a long time, then the paneer becomes rubbery.
