Paneer - Green onion Stir fry / Thoran

Paneer / Cottage Cheese is a richly packed source of protein and a diary product preferred by both vegetarians and non vegetarians.Mostly a very good body building food for the growing age groups as well.There are tons of recipes using paneer in the Indian cuisine and a very delicious ingredient too.This is a very quick and simple recipe similar to the egg burji and the tastes are also similar.

Another intelligent way of moms to sneak the cottage cheese in the packed lunch boxes for kids :-) My kids donot like it in the cube sized form,but this was a trial n error recipe and they loved it. I like green onion cut in any form and also added the green onions to it .You can replace it with any veggies or make it simple with paneer alone.

paneer / cottage cheese - 200gm
green onion 1 bunch
onion 1 small chopped
ginger 1'' shredded
garlic 3 pods thin cut
coconut grated 1/3 cup (optional)
pepper powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/3tsp
salt to taste
oil 3 tsp
mustard 1 tsp
curry leaves

  • Shred the paneer in a blender without adding water and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a non stick pan ,add oil. Splutter mustard seeds followed by curryleaves.
  • Saute chopped onion and then add ginger ,garlic pieces.
  • Add the spices except salt,and  shredded paneer to it.
  • Cover cooked for 5 minutes on low flame.Add in the grated coconut at this point.
  • Stir it in between to prevent sticking to the bottom of pan.
  • When its 3/4th cooked,add  the chopped green onions.
  • Cover and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add salt at this point and dry it up.
  • Serve hot with chapatis or plain rice.
Servings 3 adults
