Paneer and sweet corn cutlet


Paneer is something which is not loved by the husband. But thn paneer is a vegetarian way of adding protein to the diet. I make paneer at home always. He doesn’t like having paneer cubes so I mash them and use it in making rotis or add it to curries or make sandwiches with mashed paneer. And now I make these paneer cutlets as well and that too very often. I love the way these paneer cutlets comes out always. Super easy to make and delicious. They are crispy from outside and just melts in ur mouth. I often make them for dinner and serve it along with roti and dal. Simple and satisfying dinner 🙂 I don’t use any Maida, Besan or pototatoes to bind it and shallow fry them so I call them healthy as well :mrgreen:



3/4 cup Grated/Mashed paneer
1/2 boiled and mashed sweet corn
1/4 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds
2 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
Green chilly paste as per taste
2 3 springs mint leaves
2 tbsp coriander leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste
2 tsp oil
Corn flour as needed
Oil as needed to fry the cutlets


Heat 2 tsp oil in a non stick pan, add jeera. Let it crackle and add all the pastes. Add 2 tbsp of water and mix nicely in low flame. Cook the paste for a few minutes till the water dries up completely. Switch off the flame and let it cool down. Once cooled, add salt, coriander leaves, paneer and sweet corn. Using your clean hands, mix everything together very nicely, make small lemon sized balls and flatten them a little. Keep aside.

In a separate plate, take some corn flour and roll the cutlets into it. Tap to remove extras. Shallow fry the cutlets in a non stick tawa and serve hot.


* I make fresh paneer (chena) and make sure to remove all the water nicely.

* Squeeze out sweet corns as well to remove the extra water.

* If its difficult to shape the cutlets, thn add some cornflour to it and shape them. You can also use bread crumbs instead of cornflour.

* Don’t skip the use of mint leaves. They gives an amazing taste.
