Paneer Do Pyaza (Spicy Paneer Cheese Scramble With 2 Kinds of Onions)

Anything Do Pyaza has either an abundant quantity of onions or has two different types. Paneer Do Pyaza is wonderful served with the traditional meal of rice/roti, dal, and raita or as a sandwich filling. One of our favorite ways to serve it is to make a wrap using whole wheat chapatis.

4 Servings


1 Block Paneer cheese, 14 oz.
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1 medium Onion, finely chopped
1/4 to 1/2 tsp Dry Red Pepper flakes or Cayenne
Salt to taste
1 medium Red Bell Pepper, chopped
2 Tomatoes, finely chopped
1 small bunch Green Onions, finely sliced
1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro chopped


2 Tbsp oil
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds


Crumble the paneer or cut into small cubes.

Heat the oil with the cumin until sizzling and fragrant; add the red pepper flakes, regular onions, salt and turmeric and cook stirring until translucent. Add bell peppers and tomatoes and cook until softened. Stir in paneer and cover and cook for about 10 minutes or hot throughout. Stir in the green onions and cook until wilted, about a minute or so.

Spoon into a serving dish and sprinkle the chopped cilantro on top.

Serve hot.
