How to make Potato Paneer Cutlets

  1. In a small bowl add the besan and make this into a batter by adding water as required into slightly thinner batter, that is dripping consistency.
  2. In a pan add 1/2 tsp of oil, once it's hot add the chopped veggies and saute for a couple of mins and later transfer them onto a plate to cool down.
  3. In a deep mixing bowl add the grated paneer, boiled and mashed potato , chopped cilantro , sauteed veggies , all the dry spices , salt and cornstarch and mix them well until combined and dough like texture.
  4. Now take ball sized portions and shape them into cutlets.
  5. Meanwhile start heating up the oil for frying.
  6. Dip these cutlets in besan mix and then roll them in bread crumbs. Lightly press the crumbs so that they stick good to the cutlets, reshape and set aside until oil gets hot.
  7. Once the oil is moderately hot fry them until golden on both the sides.
  8. Later drain them on to a paper towel and serve hot with green chutney or ketchup.

My Tip:

Boil the potatoes just right and drain the water soon after boiling, as excess water gives us hard time in shaping and tends to absorb more oil while frying.
