Paneer bhurji with corn and capsicum

Paneer bhurji is a popular paneer preparation loved by many. It is nothing but crumbled paneer cooked with onion, tomatoes and spices.  It is generally served with bread or rotis. I have added corn and capsicum to the bhurji which adds a crunch to this dish. This paneer bhurji with corn and capsicum tastes great with hot rotis/ phulkas.

1 tsp cumin coriander powder
