The Paneer Bhurji Dosa Recipe is also known as the Paneer Masala Dosa. It is a delicious and wonderful take on the traditional classic Masala dosa that blends together the softness of cottage cheese with the crunchiness of capsicum.

The Paneer Masala/ Bhurji recipe is made with a subtle blend of spices like green chillies, turmeric powder, chilli powder, cumin powder and sambar powder giving it mouthwatering flavors and taste. I have used Ragi Idli Dosa Batter to make the dosa making it more healthy and wholesome as well. 

In addition, I have used Herb Butter which adds a lot of flavour to the Paneer Bhurji Masala Dosa. 

Serve the Paneer Masala Dosa Recipe - Paneer Bhurji Dosa along with Coconut Chutney and a cup of Filter Coffee for a delicious weekday breakfast or a special Sunday Brunch.
