Paneer Bhurjee Sandwich Recipe

Paneer is possibly the vegetarian equivalent of the egg. Paneer is also a very dairy product. Crushing the paneer and making bread crumb sized pieces for cooking is the bhurjeestyle of preparation.

Bhurjee in general terms go along with a pav and here I have stuffed the bhurjee in the whole wheat pav with some raw onions are green chillies.

It’s a very simple sandwich but I believe the process if of importance here.
