The day I made these, I had a HUGE craving for something fried. After scouring through all my recipe books I finally found the perfect thing 🙂
These are absolutely heavenly and REALLY easy to make. You just have to mix everything together! Tastes best with Green chutney and tomato ketchup.
Cottage cheese (paneer in India) is a firm and spongy cheese and has a really unique taste – not at all like other cheeses . It is used a lot in Indian cooking and lends itself well to all tastes!
250g cottage cheese, crumbled or grated
1/2 cup corn, boiled and mashed (I did not mash them and they burst while frying. So you should.)
1 tbsp ginger, grated
3 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
2 slices bread crumbled
2 tbsp. cornflour
1/4 tsp chaat masala
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp pepper powder
Salt to taste
Sesame seeds to coat
Oil to deep fry
Mix everything except the oil and sesame seeds in a bowl.
Heat oil for deep frying. Spread the sesame seeds in a plate.
Make small balls of the cottage cheese mixture and coat in the sesame seeds. (Don’t worry if the whole ball is not covered. It is supposed to be sparsely covered) (See pic)
Deep fry till golden brown. (Again, don’t worry if the sesame seeds fall off while frying.)
Drain on a paper towel and serve hot with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
