Paneer Cutlet

Paneer, this famous Indian cheese is our family favourite, i never forget to pick the store bought ones from Indian store or else i'll make myself at home. I stuffed them in parathas,fried them as pakodas,made many varieties of sabzis and many varieties of rice dishes with this incredible cheese. But trust me i never tried cutlets aka tikkis out of this Paneer. Happily i made some cutlets out of this famous cheese aka  paneer after watching a TV show, i dont remember the name of the show but i still remember this recipe.

This cutlets was in my draft since a long actually more than 5 months and finally am posting for today as i want to clean my draft posts.However this cutlets goes for usual potato and usual spices but the addition of crumbled paneer makes the difference in the texture and the taste. My kids enjoyed thoroughly this paneer cutlets with their favourite tomato ketchup.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.

1cup Crumbled paneer
3nos Potaotes (cooked & mashed)
1no Onion(chopped)
3/4tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
Few Coriander leaves (chopped)
1/4cup Bread crumbs
1/4cup Corn flour

Smash together both crumbled paneer and potatoes, add the red chilly powder, garam masala powder, coriander leaves, salt.

Meanwhile heat a few drops of oil in a kadai and add the chopped onions, saute both together until the onions turns transculent...keep aside.

Make a white thick paste with cornflour and water in a flat plate.

Take the bread crumbs in an another plate.

Add the cooked onions to the smashed potato-paneer mixture.

Take a small ball from the veggie mixture,flatten them as any shape as you desire.

Dip the cutlets in the cornflour paste, immediately roll them over the bread crumbs and keep aside.

Arrange them in fridge for an hour before shallow frying the cutlets..

Heat oil for shallow frying in pan and fry the cutlets on both sides until they turns brown.

Serve hot with ketchup.
