Palak paneer bhurji is the recipe that is taken inspiration from a very classical egg preparation which is called the “bhurji”. The paneer is crumbled and sauted with palak to give it a scramble appearance like that of the “egg bhurji”. This is a healthy variation to regular bhurji made with paneer. Adding palak will help to keep your iron content high when it is consumed.
