Paneer bhurji is a popular preparation loved by indians across the world. It is an easy, spicy dish that tastes great with bread and parathas! down south, paneer bhurji is sometimes used as a stuffing for dosas to make paneer dosa, similar to the aloo-filled masala dosa! the most important tip for making fantastic paneer bhurji is to use fresh cottage cheese, and make the bhurji just before serving; otherwise it tends to get a little soggy.
