Cabbage Paneer Bhurji

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.


  1. i personally think cabbage is smellier than onion. i dislike both, so i'd gladly avoid both.

  2. Hey - this is one of my favs - love paneer and tomatoes both, cabbage is a new addition,which i am not so fond of :). But if you recommend - have to give it a try

    cheers girl

  3. i like the sound of this, have bookmarked to try :)

  4. You seem to post almost daily. Wow!

  5. Hi!
    I have all the ingredients for this recipe now!!! this looks like a simple but healthy dish!!

  6. Took basic idea from ur recipe and added lots of other things like garam masala and pav bhaji masala out of curiosity. Turned out good with tofu. Thanks.

  7. Aruna Nayak I guess tofu would need all that spice up. Paneer needs more mellow spice. Good you tried it. Pav bhaaji masala really perks up even the drab ones.


Thank You for taking the time to leave your thoughts here.
