Paneer Bhurji/Seasoned and Crumbled Cottage Cheese

Paneer Bhurji/ 
Seasoned and Crumbled Cottage Cheese
Hi Friends,
Few days back milk become sour and i made cottage cheese out of it. I thought to make rasgullas with it but it was time consuming and i don't get time for elaborated recipes. So made a very simple, quick and healthy side dish with it. It takes hardly 5-7 minutes to make it. I love this as it don't require fancy spices or ingredients. Just use whatever you have in hand. You can skip tomato onion and mix whatever veggie you like or make it plain.
I made it for breakfast with Lentil and Semolina Pancakes/ Daal aur sooji ka dosa. It was a super great combo. Everyone loved it. My kids enjoyed it a lot. Try this combo guys it would be surely on your weekly menu list.
