Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 5 mins
Total time: 15 mins
These are deep-fried (gasp!) but you don't need to each much of them.
  • 1 block of paneer or farmer cheese cut into 1.5" square x .25" thick
  • Mint or Green chutney (can also substitute pesto for a different flavor)
  • ¾ cup Besan (Chickpea) flour or Wheat/White mix works fine too
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of Curry powder
  • Pink of Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Oil for frying
  1. Make little sandwiches by spreading the chutney in between two slices of cheese
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, seeds and spices together. Add enough water to make a thick batter
  3. Heat the oil
  4. Dip the cheese sandwiches in the egg and then the batter
  5. Fry in hot oil
Drain on paper. Cut in half and serve hot with more chutney.
