Paneer-Bhurji stuffed Avocado

While writing this post, I felt Avocados have somehow sponsored my blog – 4 avocado recipes in a few months. Alas! It is wishful thinking – not sponsored at all. It is a need-based creation. ‘Why,’ you ask?

Well, I could get away with Guacamole – but we have let go of chips, so Guacamole seems redundant and we have it occasionally. Therefore, I have many recipes for Avocados to eat without always making Guacamole: Avocado Salad, Avocado-paan ice cream, and Avocado Raita!

What is Paneer Bhurji? 

Paneer Bhurji is a sabzi/dish made out of scrambled Indian cottage cheese, a.k.a., paneer, cooked chopped onions, and flavored spices.

My mom adds besan or gram/chickpea flour in paneer bhurji, which is the key to this recipe’s fantastic flavor.

Why stuff Paneer Bhurji in Avocados? 

We usually have bhurji with Roti or Indian Flatbread. However, I sometimes use it to stuff in Avocados for a low-carb alternative. Please give it a try – it tastes finger-licking delicious!
