Paneer balls

I had lot of paneer cubes in my refrigerator and was wondering how to use them..Because I wanted to make something different and new this time, apart from the Chilli Paneer which is an all time favorite in my house. Then I just found this recipe in my recipe notebook. And it turned out very yummy and we enjoyed it a lot. When I was frying these paneer balls it smelled like I was frying those golden balls of Gulab jamuns :) and don't they look like Gulab juamun ? Its just that they are savory..you can even call them Savory Gulab Jamuns :D

PANEER BALLS

Ingredients:
200 grams Paneer,
2 tbsp of maida/all purpose flour,
1 tsp chopped ginger,
1 tsp chopped garlic,
4-5 green chillies,
1 tsp garam masala powder,
oil for deep frying,
1/2 tsp red chilli powder,
a pinch of red color(optional),
1 finely chopped onion,
50 grams of cashew nuts,
1/4 cup of fresh coriander leaves-chopped,
few curry leaves,
1 lime and
salt to taste.

Method:
Grate paneer, add maida, garam masala powder, chilli powder, salt to taste and a pinch of red color if using any. Mix well to form a dough and make lemon sized balls, deep fry in oil and keep aside. In a pan, heat 1 -2 tbsp oil and add the ginger, garlic, slit green chillies, onions, curry leaves and cashew and saute it for a while. Now add the fried Paneer balls and saute it for 5 more minutes. Sprinkle little water and cook till dry. Lastly add juice of 1 lime and some freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Dear Faiza
This is great, instead of making a typical Paneer kofta curry, you presented us with this great dish.
Ya when you fry Paneer or milk product , you get that aroma. In fact there is few traditional Bengali dish in Paneer, where Paneer is always fried and used.
In fact I cook all Paneer dishes ( North Indian) with bit of frying and never raw.
Have a nice Holiday
