Paneer Bread Balls | Paneer Snacks

I have tasted paneer balls from Nilgiris and was wondering what ingredients went in to make these tasty balls. But I knew potato and panner were the main ingredients so gave a try and instantly loved it.
Paneer Balls Recipe

Ingredients :
  • Paneer - 1 cup
  • Bread - 3 slices
  • Potato - 1/2 (just for binding)
  • Onion - 1 finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
  • Tomato Sauce - 1 tbsp
  • Rava - 1/2 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil - as required

Paneer Balls Recipe
Method:
  1. Crumble the paneer well. Knead it for 5mins until well combined. Boil potatoes until soft and combine with paneer,add required salt and keep aside.
  2. Cut the corner of the bread slices, sip it in water and add it to crumbled paneer . then add all the other ingredients except oil and combine to form a smooth dough just enough to roll into balls.
  3. Now pinch equal sized balls and roll them into small balls and deep fry them in oil(I used my paniyaram pan to toast them to reduce oil)
Paneer Bread Balls Recipe
My Notes:
  • It is a very easy and interesting snack/starter idea. I have seen this in nilgiris in the name of paneer balls.
  • Alternatively you can dip the balls in maida water paste , them cover them with breadcrumbs as we do for veg cutlets and then deep fry or toast them.
