A paneer snack – Fingers of paneer coated in bread crumbs. I guess you could call it the vegetarian alternative to fish fingers. Easy peasy recipe under the cut.
First off, this snack can be fried or baked. The ones pictured here is the baked version (similar to my baked french fries), but I must say I prefer the unhealthier, fried version. Tastes much better, and the crumbs stick to the paneer much better.
So, recipe: the amount of paneer depends entirely on the number of people you intend to feed. Cut the paneer into little fingers, and set aside. Now take a shallow basin and add a teaspoon or two of cornflour. Add a dash of lemon juice or vinegar, and salt and chilli powder to taste. Mix well into a paste, and marinate the paneer in the mixture for a few minutes.
Roll the paneer in bread crumbs and fry in hot oil (or bake, depending on your levels of fitness). I like to make fresh crumbs each time, from dry, old bread and cornflakes, to give it that ‘crunch’. Tastes great with tomato ketchup.
