You'll need: 

  • Paneer – 1 cup

  • Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
  • Coriander leaves – 3 tbsp
  • Bread Crumbs – As needed
  • Salt – to taste

Boil the potatoes and mash them well. Dip the bread slices in little water and squeeze out water completely by pressing it well between your palms. 

In a bowl mix together mashed potatoes, crumpled paneer, finely chopped onion, green chilly, ginger, red chilli  powder, garam masala powder, coriander leaves, lemon juice, salt and a tsp of oil. 

Make small balls or into any required shape of your choice. Spread the bread crumbs on a plate and roll these balls over them so that they are well coated. 

Heat oil in a pan and slip them 3 or 4 at a time and deep fry till they are brown in color and remove on a kitchen paper. 

Serve hot with Tomato Sauce.
