Snack recipe using paneer which is mildly spiced and absolutely healthy is paneer cutlet. It has soft and melt-in-mouth inside and crisp and crunchy outside. Paneer cutlets can be prepared quickly and without many ingredients. Paneer cutlets can also be used to make wholesome burgers.
Paneer is such a versatile ingredient. I use paneer in many ways. It is used to make so many gravies such as kadai paneer, butter paneer masala, etc; snacks such as paneer tikka; bread such as paneer paratha etc.
Cutlets do not ask for too many ingredients or too much time. The main ingredient followed by some binding ingredient and something to add the crunch and a few spices! Paneer cutlets are no different. Following is all you need to make this paneer recipe:
Paneer: I have used homemade paneer. In fact, I had little paneer left over after preparing Shahi paneer, so I used that.
Boiled Potatoes: Boiled potatoes are used to bring all the ingredients together and give shape to the dough.
Bread Crumbs: I have used the Instant Bread Crumbs.
Spices: White pepper powder and chaat masala are used to spice up the cutlets.
