Till some time back my daughter refused to eat paneer but now has refuses to acknowledge that as she cannot stop herself from relishing any paneer dish.So preparing her lunch box became way easier. One of her favourite dishes is Paneer Bhurji. As i prepare paneer always in a Microwave, it becomes all the more easy and fast to prepare this dish.
