Crispy paneer and cheddar cheese flavoured balls. paneer cheese balls is a tasty crispy way to enjoy cheese. They are tiny bite size pieces that you can easily pop in your mouth and ideal for dipping in your favourite sauces like mint chutney or tamarind chutney. You can ever customise your tastes.
Paneer is a fresh, mild and dence cheese that doesn’t melt. We can buy it in Indian grocery stores or can make paneer at home. It is a versatile vegetarian option. Paneer absorbs spices really well and cooks easily. Here I have added just enough spices in paneer cheese balls, for a good background flavour and aroma.Jump to Recipe
