Cottage Cheese with Mixed Vegetables
Or, Paneer Bhurji. I will make something like this when there is just veggies in the fridge and it pairs up perfectly with rice or chapati. I always have a slab of paneer(cottage cheese) in the freezer. I remember, about 2 years back, when I had just come back to US after spending 2 years in Kolkata, I used to open the fridge and stare. I could not think of anything to make. That 2 years had spoilt me rotten. We had a cook plus two other maids, and my son had a nanny and my parents-in-law took care of everything household related. I basically had to re-learn everything. Easy recipes like this absolutely positively saved the day. My three-year-old loves to eat this.
