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!
Happy Cooking!


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.)

The mixture with whole, not mashed, corn.

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)

The croquettes. (Not fired.)

Deep fry till golden brown. (Again, don’t worry if the sesame seeds fall off while frying.)
