Tofu paneer vegetable bhurji

Make one dish and have a very good balanced meal. This recipe has fiber, vegetables, greens, protein, good fat (use olive oil), dairy. If you eat this along with roti will add your carb.

Amazing for day to day busy life and lunchbox. Easy to make and almost one pot recipe. Tastes great. What else can I offer you my readers :). Go ahead and try this today.

Paneer grated: 1/2 cup
Tofu grated: 1/2 cup
Cabbage grated: 1/2 cup
Green beans finely chopped: 1/2 cup
Onion: 1 medium
Ginger garlic grated: 1 table spoon
Green chilies: 2-3
Tomato grated: 1 medium

Tip: additional vegetable suggestion: capsicum (red, green, yellow), corn, carrot, cauliflower.

Cumin seeds: 1/2 table spn
Turmeric: 1/2 table spn
Dry mango powder: 1/2 - 1 table spn
Garam masala powder: 1/4 table spoon
Oil: 1 table spoon
Salt to taste
For garnish:
Coriander finely chopped
Finely chopped ginger

Wash, clean and grate or fine chop all vegetables. Grate paneer and tofu. I have added paneer as I do not like just the taste of tofu. If you want you can simply remove paneer all together from the recipe.
Boil hard to cook vegetables green beans in this case for 5-6 minutes in boiling water until soft. Not too soft else it will get soggy. Rinse it.

Heat the pan. Add oil and let it heat up. This recipe will taste great even without any oil so for those who are watching your weight go ahead without oil.

Add cumin seeds and let it splutter. Add ginger garlic and green chilies. After a minute add onions. Stir until onions are soft.
Add green beans, cabbage and stir until cabbage is soft.
Add tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are soft.
Finally add tofu and paneer and all the masalas. Cook on very slow flame for 5minutes.
Garnish with coriander and ginger.
Enjoy with rice, dal, chapatti, bread of your choice.
