Paneer Bhurji ( Scrambled Indian Cottage Cheese)

I thought the only bhurji I would ever have in my kitchen would be eggs. I stumbled upon this invention when I was left with some split milk one morning. Now I even crumble my paneer to make this dish. An easy recipe for stuffed paranthas, sandwiches or a simple dish with rotis.
