About Paneer Bhurji

In India, no party or get together is complete without a paneer dish; it is, in fact, the vegetarian chicken! Indian paneer cheese is made by curdling milk using food-derived acid from lemon, sour curd, vinegar, or citric acid.
The name is derived from Persian 'panir' and its origin has been attributed to Iranian, Afghan, Portuguese invaders and settlers. It is mildly flavoured and can absorb all the flavours that are added to it.

It is non-fermented, non-melting farmers’ cheese and an integral part of Indian cuisine where one can find the names Paneer do pyaza, mattar paneer, paneer makhani and kadhai paneer on most Indo – Pakistani restaurant menus. Most of these dishes are cooked with chopped onion, crushed green chillies, ginger and garlic and stir.

With a biological value of protein being 80-86%, it contains all the nine essential amino acids. It is low in carbs and is a healthy food choice for diabetics that make it perfect for controlling post-meal sugar surges.
