Paneer and Egg Bhurji

Finally I was able to compose my thali the way I wanted and without all the rush!
Looks like chicken, but those are paneer cubes.
Inspired again by SMTC.
14 oz paneer (I used a batch from 2L milk)
2 eggs, hardboiled and sliced
1 Tbsp canola oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp grated garlic
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 green chili, seeded and sliced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp chat masala (I didn't have any)
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ground coriander
salt to taste
1.  Heat the oil in a wok and sizzle the cumin seeds.
2.  Add the turmeric, onion, ginger, and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent.
3.  Add the green chilis and tomatoes.  Cook for a few minutes until tomatoes become mushy.
4.  Add the remaining spices.  Incorporate well, taste, and add salt if needed.
5.  Add the paneer cubes and heat through.

Add the sliced egg 1 minute before serving.

Ooh look at that protein party..
This is exactly what I need to recover from one week of 100% spiceless food.
