Here is a recipe for a zesty, filling appetizer that is rich in taste and proteins as well. Mamta Jain shows how to make it.
- For the cover:
- 4 red onions cut at length
- 2 cups paneer cut in ¾ or 1 inch cubes
- 2 green chilies finely chopped
- 1 tsp ginger grated
- 2 tsp cilantro finely chopped
- 1 tbsp chaat masala
- 2 tbsp cooking oil
- salt to tastel
- Preparation Time: 20min
- Cooking Time: 10 min
Heat oil in a pan and add onion and cook for about five minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients: paneer, chilies, ginger, chaat masala, salt and lime juice and stir for 3-4 minutes to marinate the cubes well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with hot.
Make it a meal: Roll the Paneer Chaatwala in a Kawan Paratha, Roti or make a Paneer Panini (stuffed in bread and grill it) and enjoy it with a spicy mint chutney.
