Authentic Paneer Bhurji Gravy Recipe – Dhaba Style | Paneer Ki Bhurji Gravy Street Style

An extremely popular paneer gravy recipe, paneer ki bhurji gravy street style is made by crumbling paneer and blending spices. 

In essence, it is a vegetarian version of the popular egg bhurji recipe, but it uses the same set of spices and ingredients. 

It is usually served as a side dish with bread or pav, but also tastes great when served with roti/chapati, paratha, or naan for lunch and dinner.

Recipes with paneer are always a favorite of vegetarians. Paneer is generally used in curries as cubes or stuffed into snacks for a creamy and spongy texture. 

Some egg alternatives can be used in place of crumbled paneer or bhurji, which provide the same creaminess and richness without egg.

There is a booming popularity of bhurji recipes, especially in urban areas. In street food restaurants, it is typically served with pav or bread slices as a lunch or dinner dish. 

This recipe is healthy, quick, and most importantly very tasty as compared to traditional curries and sabzi recipes. Authentic bhurji is traditionally made with eggs. However, paneer can provide a similar texture and flavor. 

Additionally, this is a gravy recipe that is native to the dhaba style or street style. By adding besan flour to the gravy, you will be able to achieve the desired texture and creaminess. 

The dhaba style preparation would also add sour thick curd but i have skipped both in this recipe as paneer crumble would provide the same creaminess.

Paneer Bhurji Gravy Recipe: Recipe Notes

  • Also, I would like to offer some additional tips, suggestions, and variants to the paneer bhurji gravy recipe. I think the most important aspect of this recipe is selecting the right paneer. 
  • While preparing the gravy, it must be moist, fresh, and easily crumbled without dissolving. Homemade paneer is ideal for this recipe. 
  • Secondly, adding besan is not mandatory in this recipe and it may be completely omitted. 
  • The addition of besan can improve the consistency and creaminess of the gravy, but it may also thicken it. 
  • If you want to avoid it, feel free. Last but not least, if you like eggs, you can add an egg or paneer to make it tastier.
  • You can add ½ tsp garam masala, 1 tsp kasuri methi, and 2 tbsp coriander also as garnishing.
  • To make homemade paneer add lemon juice to the milk when it starts boiling. If you want even more creamier paneer then add curd instead of lemon juice.
  • The whey can be consumed after cooling as it is loaded with proteins and can be added to rice when you are cooking rice, but it shouls be consumed fast.
