Cabbage Paneer Bhurji and Chavlachi Roti
This one is for my brother. He has just embarked on a new phase in life of bachelor cooking a turning point for most Indian men. So far he has been one excellent tea brewer and knows how to use a cooker and makes himself varan, bhat and batata bhaaji.
It is really simple and nutritious recipe will take care of his protien needs and have veggies too. It can be eaten with any type of roti or just by it self when on reduction diet.
1 cup grated cabbage
2 tomatoes diced
1 cup paneer crushed
2 green chilies
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
2 teapsoons oil
salt to taste
Heat oil in a wok. Add the cabbage and green chilies mix. Now add the red chili powder, turmeric, tomatoes, paneer and cook for 6-8 mins stiring intermittently.
The burji is ready to be served. The best part is one can eat it hot or at room temperature it still tastes yummy. You will note this one can be eaten as satvic food as there are no onions used.
In Maharshtra cabbage is used as substitute for onion to make satvic food in dishes like kande pohe, Kanda bhaji etc. and we get a whole new taste. This works well when one has to meet people and needs to avoid smelly foods. No one likes smelling of the food they just enjoyed so this is your solution.
