Paneer Bhurji Cones

Paneer Bhurji Cones should be part of you next Diwali or Holiday party. You can make these fusion cones using Kawan Parathas or  Puff Pastry. They turn out flakey, crunchy and have lots of flavor. I love this dish as it is high in protein and contains lots of veggies. You can serve it as an appetizer for your parties or a late afternoon snack with chai. If you have Paneer Bhurji prepped ahead of time you can also make these cones for breakfast next day. Once you have the Bhurji ready this dish is so easy to make. My son loves it and I can’t wait to send this to school lunches. 


Paneer Bhurji Cones

We make Paneer dishes several times a week and I love to include veggies when cooking with paneer to make it a wholesome. These crunchy cones are perfect to serve as an appetizer or enjoy them as a snack. They taste tangy, spicy, crunchy and so delicious.
