Italian Flavoured Paneer Bhurji

Italian flavoured paneer bhurji.
A different way to make our very own paneer bhurji. This lip-smacking paneer bhurji can be serve as a side dish or make sandwich stuffing or use as pizza topping.

We normally make paneer bhurji with onion garlic tomato and some Indian spices. But this time made with Italian seasonings.
Well now you can ask that how I get the idea of making this Italian flavoured paneer bhurji. Because this week our 187 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is desi twist suggested by Kalyani Sri who blog at https://www.sizzlingtastebuds.com/?m=1

According to Kalyani “the base idea has to be an Indian dish but not an Indian ingredient’. So I have made our humble paneer bhurji Italian. And loved the taste. Try it, I am sure you will also love the taste.
You can use bell peppers or any vegetable of your choice.

Recipe

Paneer or cottage cheese – 2 cup, crumbled

Onion – 1, finely chopped

Green chilli – 1 – 2, finely chopped

Garlic – 2 – 3 cloves, minced

Green peas – 1/2 cup, boiled or frozen

Sweet corn – 1/2 cup, boiled

Capsicum – 1, cubed

Tomato – 2 medium, cubed

Onion – 1, cubed

Oregano – 2 teaspoon

Dried Basil – 1 teaspoon

Rosemary – 1/2 teaspoon, optional

Red chilli flakes – 1 teaspoon

Black pepper powder – 1 teaspoon

Pizza sauce – 2 tablespoon

Vinegar – 1 tablespoon

Tomato sauce – 1 tablespoon

Olive oil – 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Chopped scallion or onion green – 1 tablespoon, optional

Method

1. In a bowl mix pizza sauce, vinegar, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, black pepper powder and red chilli flakes. Also add rosemary if using. Mix well and keep aside.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add finely chopped onion. Fry till translucent.

3. Add minced garlic and chopped green chilli. Fry till garlic becomes brown.

4. Add cubed onion, tomato, capsicum and salt. Add salt carefully. Sauce has enough salt. Saute for 2 minutes.

5. Add boiled sweet corn and green peas. Mix well.

6. Add crumbled paneer or cottage cheese and mix. I have used homemade paneer or cottage cheese. Get the recipe here.

7. Reduce the heat. Cook on simmer for 4-5 minutes or till it dried up. Stir continuously. Cooking on low heat helps the paneer to absorb the flavour of herbs.

8. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Add 1/2 tablespoon chopped scallion or onion green if using. Mix and remove from heat.

9. Garnish with remaining 1/2 tablespoon scallion. Serve hot as a side dish with any bread or make sandwich stuffing. Even you can use it as pizza topping.

Notes

1. You can use bell peppers, broccoli, beans or any vegetable of your choice.

2. Any vegetable oil can be used instead of olive oil.

Potato With Green Peas

Potatoes with green peas.
A spicy, no onion garlic and delicious potato dish. Best accompany with puri, paratha, roti, dal chawal or make sandwich stuffing.
Little different from nimona or green peas curry.
I have used cilantro or coriander leaves with green peas for flavour but if you don’t like cilantro then you can omit it. Potatoes will be lip-smacking without it too.
In winter my vegetable vendor brings lots of colourful vegetables. And we buy green peas mostly every day. You can add these in any dish. Even green peas stuffed kachori or paratha are most favourite delicacies in this season.

You may also like Matar kofta or green peas dumplings.

 

 

And green peas are also healthy and nutritious. And high in many nutrients and antioxidants.

Green peas are a popular vegetable. They are also quite nutritious and contain a fair amount of fiber and antioxidants.

Additionally, research shows they may help protect against some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer.

They have been part of the human diet for hundreds of years and are consumed all over the world.

Green peas have an impressive nutrition profile.
Their calorie content is fairly low, with only 62 calories per 1/2-cup (170-gram) serving.
About 70% of those calories come from carbs and the rest are provided by protein and a small amount of fat.
Furthermore, peas contain just about every vitamin and mineral you need, in addition to a significant amount of fiber.

Recipe is very easy to make. Just grind the peas ginger, green chilli, tomatoes and cilantro and mix with boiled and fried potatoes and cook. I have used small potatoes but if you don’t have small potatoes then you can also make it with large or medium potatoes. If you are using large potatoes, make small pieces and follow the method.

Recipe

Small potatoes – 500 gram, boiled

Green peas – 1 cup

Cilantro or coriander leaves – 1/2 cup, chopped

Ginger – 1 inch piece

Green chilli – 2

Tomato – 2 medium, chopped

Cumin powder – 1 teaspoon

Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon

Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon

Garam masala powder – 1/2 teaspoon

Salt to taste

Mustard oil – 2-3 tablespoon

Water – 3/4 cup

Method

1. Peel the potatoes. You can prick the potatoes with a fork.

2. Grind green chilli, cilantro or coriander leaves, ginger and tomatoes.

3. Add green peas in the grinder and grind altogether.

4. Heat oil in a pan. Add the potatoes and little salt. Fry till the potatoes becomes light golden brown. Remove from oil.

5. Add the ground paste in the oil. Saute and add cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder garam masala and salt.

6. Saute till the mixture dried up and raw smell goes away.

7. Add fried potatoes and mix well. Saute for 1 – 2 minutes.

8. Add water and mix. Cook on low medium heat till water evaporate and dried up. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking at the bottom. You can add little more water if require.

9. Potatoes are ready. You can add 1 teaspoon ghee or clarified butter at the end.

10. Garnish with cilantro or coriander leaves.
Serve hot with roti, paratha, puri naan or any bread. These potatoes also taste great with dal chawal. If you have some leftover potatoes mash and use as a sandwich stuffing.

Notes

1. You can garnish with ginger julienne.

2. You can grind garlic cloves with green chilli, cilantro, ginger and tomato if you like garlicky flavour.

3. If you don’t like cilantro or coriander leaves, then you can omit it.
