Magic With Cottage Cheese ( Paneer )

( Click image for enlarged view )

Paneer is such a versatile ingredient there is no limitation to use it. I have a big crush on paneer and whenever I come across any new variety with paneer I bookmark it without second thought. Because of this habit when I saw this paneer stuffed okra on my darling friend Aipi's blog n paneer kachori on another wonderfull blogger friend Santosh I was determined to try them very soon. And I did it !!

I thank them both for sharing these wonderfull recipes. My crush with paneer will continue for ever : )

Paneer Kachori

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 1/2 cup grated paneer
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped mint leaves
  • 3 tbsp grated carrot
  • 3 finely chopped chilli
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
  • salt to taste
  • oil for deep fry
Mix all the above ingredient except oil nicely then add 1/4 cup or less water to make a elastic n silky smooth dough.Divide the dough into 10 balls and with a rolling pin shape them into circles of 3-4 inch diameter.

Heat oil in a fry pan, once hot drop one puri at a time and let if puff. Make sure both the sides are golden brown before you remove from oil.

Serve hot with a cup of tea.
