Crispy Paneer balls

Paneer is a fresh cheese. It is available in all Indian grocery stores. Most of the time paneer is homemade in Indian houses.

Famous curries are made using paneer. To name a few, Paneer butter masala, Kadai paneer, Palak paneer, Paneer tikka masala.

Paneer is calcium and protein-rich substitute for vegetarians. It is a versatile ingredient which merges easily and can be substituted in most of the meat recipes.

Paneer is a favourite of my kids too. This recipe is a snack item. Paneer merges with bread and potato in this recipe to enhance the taste. Potato is used as a binding agent in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • Paneer-1 cup
  • Bread-4 slices
  • Potato-1(medium-sized)
  • Chopped Onion-1
  • Cilantro leaves- a few
  • Semolina-1 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
  • Chilli powder-1 tsp
  • Salt
  • Oil

Method

  • Boil the potato with enough water until it becomes soft. Peel and mash the potato.
  • Meanwhile, crumble the bread slices in a blender.
  • Grate the paneer using a grater or use a blender to crumble the paneer.
  • In a mixing bowl, add potato, paneer, onion, cilantro leaves, semolina, turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt.
  • Next, add crumbled bread and give it a good mix.
  • The mixture should be blended well together.
  • Hot oil in an Appe pan. Make the mixture into small balls and place them in each cavity of Appe pan.
  • Turn frequently to avoid burning. Cook till the balls get a golden brown colour.
  • Serve hot with tomato ketchup.

Notes

  • When frying the paneer balls, the heat should be low to avoid burning the food.
  • Turn the paneer balls frequently to avoid burning and as the paneer balls cook faster and have the tendency to stick in the cavity of Appe pan.
  • The bread and semolina give crispiness to the paneer balls.
