Paneer Franky & Corriander Chutney

My family is a big fan of Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese ), we just love paneer in any form be it palak paneer or masala paneer or fried Paneer ( paneer pakoda ).. its just very tasty and yummmy I think. So this time I tried another snack made out of paneer.I normally buy the frozen paneer from Indian store but back home in India you get fresh paneer or some do make paneer @home.Below is link if you want to make it @ home.

To all the Paneer Lovers enjoy Paneer Franky. Very simple and easy snack that you can enjoy any time.

what do you need to make it:

1 cup Paneer

1/2 Onion

1/2 Green Pepper

1 Tomato

1 teaspoon Chaat Masala

1/2 tea spoon Red Chilli

1/4 tea spoon Turmeric powder


Mint/ Corrainder Chutney (recipe below or can get store bought)

Lets make it :

paneer filling

  • Nicely dice 1/2onion, 1 tomato, 1/2green pepper into small pieces
  • Take pan and add 1/2 table spoon of oil. Let the oiil come to heat and then add onions.Sautee' the onion until they turn brown and then add tomatoes.
  • Add some chilli powder,turmeric powder,chaat masala to the mix.Add green pepper on top of it.
  • Crumble 1 cup of paneer and add it to the pan. Mix it for some more time , cool it for 5 -10 mins and add some salt as per the taste.

Lets Wrap it up:

  • You can get store bought tortilla , I prefer getting wheat one as wheat is healthy and less fatty :). if you cant get store bought tortilla you can make it @ home here s a link ,
  • Heat a flat pan , apply some butter on both the sides of the tortilla,if you dont apply butter the tortilla can go hard.
  • Once the pan is hot put tortilla into the pan , apply some mint or corriander chutney on top tortilla and then fill it up with paneer masala that we made before.
  • Round the tortilla like a dosa or a burritto, once tortilla is nice and brown serve it on a plate cut into pieces and have it with sauce :).....

Some Tips:

You can always make tortilla before hand and store in fridge , it remains good for a long time if properlly cooked.

Different color of peppers like red, yellow peppers into the mix too.

You can get mint chutney in the store or u can make it @ home , how ??scroll down

Corrainder Chutney/Min chutney:

1 bunch of corrainder leaves

4-5 leaves of mint

1/2 green chilli

grated coconut

1 table spoon of yogurt

lemon juice and sugar, salt as per the taste

Get a grinder ,add everything into and mix it . Dont add water all at once otherwise it will be too watery...add water as u neeed. Try this chutney you will love it , you can hav eit with dosa, idli and even apply on bread and have sandwich.
