Paneer Nuggets

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
After my both the daughters are feeling better, I am also relaxed. As per doctor's advice, I did not give the milk to them, and all the milk was lying like that only in the fridge. I was thinking what to do with so much milk. Then I remembered the show I watched last week.

I really envy those food show anchors, who get chance to try all the food under the sun!!!! With that jealousy,  I never miss any shows whenever I get time!! NDTV Good Times has lot of good programs on food around the world. And last week I watched the show run by Aditya Bal. In that show his mother made these Paneer nuggets!!!
Thats what came in my mind to make these nuggets with home made Paneer. But I did not take the photos of making Paneer. May be later when I make paneer again, I will take the pics and post the recipe. I took photo only after I prepared it. Here it is :
The chef  in the show, had taken the ready paneer cubes and marinated it with SALT, RED CHILLY POWDER, GARAM MASALA,  and I think he added  LEMON also. And he had kept it in the fridge for an hour or so. BUT,  check my version below.
I put the paneer in a rectangular box and kept in the fridge for an hour. After an hour, I removed it, cut into the pieces. In that one hour, I prepared BREAD CRUMBS at home with fresh bread.
For bread crumbs:
Fresh white bread - 4 to 6 pieces
(white bread or wheat bread or you can mix both)
Cut the bread into pieces. Keep it in microwave for 2 minutes to dry the bread. Keep it to cool. Put in a food processor or grinder to make it into a coarse or fine powder according to the requirement. Some recipes require coarse powder. I made it fine powder.
You can store it in airtight jar and can be stored in the fridge for a week. 
Ingredients :
For Paneer Cubes:
Paneer - 200 gm
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp
Lime Juice - 1 tsp
Here is the twist in my version : Mix all the ingredients nicely. Transfer in to a square box. Keep in the fridge for an hour or two. Remove it and cut into cubes or desired shapes. Here it looks like :
                                           
Now the ingredients used for the coating,
Bread crumbs - 1/2 or 1 cup
Salt a pinch
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Mix  bread crumbs, salt, red chilly powder  and coriander powder. Spread it in a plate.
Maida or All purpose flour - 1/2 cup. Spread it in a separate plate.
Egg - 1, break and beat the egg in a bowl.
If not using egg, 
Maida to coat the cubes

Oil to fry
Here it is :                       
                                             

Here is the clumsy work begins,
TAKE ONE PANEER  CUBE,
FIRST ROLL IT WITH MAIDA. 
WASH IT WITH EGG MIX. (DIP THE PIECE FULLY IN  EGG ) 
OR

Make a thin paste of maida and water. Dip the cubes in it instead of egg. 
(thanks Madhuri for reminding me!!!)

THEN PUT IT IN A BREAD CRUMBS PLATE AND ROLL IT TO COVER THE PIECE PROPERLY.
REPEAT WITH OTHER PANEER CUBES. 
Here it looks like,
                                         

Heat oil in a kadai. Once it is very hot, lower the flame and fry the paneer cubes in batches till golden brown.
PANEER NUGGETS ARE READY TO SERVE WITH HOT TEA OR AS A STARTER.






HEY, DOES IT LOOK LIKE MORE WORK???? NO!!! MY POST IS LONGER. 
IT IS VERY EASY AND FAST TO MAKE. TRY IT!!

Keep Smiling,
