Scrambled Cottage Cheese Sandwich

We are in the fifth week of Blog hop Wednesday, enjoying the ride. This week I have cooked from Ramya's Recipe, the ever so popular Paneer Burji. I used the same ingredients just slathered the bread with mint  chutney and it was a perfect breakfast.Check out the ingredients.

Paneer-1 cup
Oil-1 tbsp
Jeera-1/2 tsp
Ginger paste-1 tsp
Turmeric-a pinch
Chilly powder-3/4-1tsp
Salt-to taste
Garam masala-1/2 tsp
Coriander Leaves -For garnish
Bread slices

Mint chutney

Mint leaves- 1 cup
Coriander leaves-1 cup
Green Chilly-1
A small piece of ginger
Sugar- a pinch
Salt according to taste
Lemon juice- 1 tsp

Grind all these ingredients for an aromatic chutney. Spread this on the sandwich and top with filling of choice.

Method-Soak the paneer cubes in hot water for ten minutes. This will make it soft. Take a pan, add oil,and then the jeera, let it splutter.Add in the onions wait till it turns transparent.Next to go is the ginger paste. I have omitted garlic paste.Now add the spice powders turmeric and chilly powder and salt. Add tomato and saute it well. Now crumble the paneer with your fingers Finally add garam masala powder and cook well for five minutes. Add corainder leaves for garnish. use this as a filling for breads and rotis.

This dish is so versatile. You can try your own combinations, in the evening I cut up a raw onion finely and added chat masala to further perk this recipe up.This dish is so easy make and tastes so good. You can have it for breakfast as an evening snack or pack it up for a picnic.
