1 1/2 cup paneer grated
1/2 cup hung curd (in my case, I used the yogurt dip made with hung curd)
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
1 tbsp bread crumbs for binding
1/3 cup fried onions (preferably crispy fried)
1-2 chillies chopped (optional)
Salt as per taste
2 tbsp chopped cashews
2 tbsp raisins
Bread crumbs for rolling the kababs
Oil for shallow frying
In a bowl, take the grated paneer, hung curd, spices, nuts, 1 tbsp bread crumbs, and salt and mix well. If you feel the mixture is not binding well, add some more bread crumbs just enough to bind it all together. Adding a lot of bread crumbs will make it taste like more of bread pakora. Add the fried onions and mix well. Check for seasoning. Now take small ball sized portions from the mixture and gently press between your palms to give the shape of a kabab. Roll the kababs on a plate of bread crumbs and arrange on a plate. Repeat for the rest of the mixture. Now keep the plate of the ready to fry kababs in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or until ready to fry.
Heat a little oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the kababs till golden on both sides. Remove from heat and serve hot with coriander chutney. You can keep these kababs ready in the fridge for frying just before serving. Ensure that you keep them covered when keeping for longer duration.
