I chose Paneer (Cottage Cheese) and this is the starters dish for the same. I chose this recipe from “Healthy Starters” by Tarla Dalal. This was a simple to make recipe but really really delicious and healthy too… My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the same…
Preparation Time:- 15 mins | Cooking Time:- 5 mins | Serves:- 4-5 people
For Hara Chutney:
- 1 cup chopped coriander (dhania)
- 3 tbsp freshly grated coconut
- 3/4 tea spoon sugar
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 green chillis, chopped
- salt to taste
- 2 tbsp curd (Dahi)
- 200 gms of Paneer cut into 1 inch pieces
- 3/4 cup boiled or frozen corn kernels
- pinch of sugar
- pinch of salt
- 2 tea spoon chopped coriander
- 2 tbsp milk
- 3 tea spoon oil
- 1 medium onions finely chopped
For Hara Chutney:
Combine all the ingredients, except the curd and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.
Transfer to a bowl, add the curd and mix well. Keep aside.
You can use this recipe to make the chutney as well.
Marinate the paneer pieces, with 5 tbsp of chutney for 30 mins.
Combine the corn, sugar, salt and 2 tbsp of chutney and blend to make a coarse paste.
Transfer the paste to a bowl and coriander and milk and mix well.
Heat 1 and 1/2 tea spoon of oil in a non-stick pan, add onions and saute till the onions become translucent.
Add corn paste and saute for 2-3 mins.
Cool it slightly.
Place the paneer pieces on a flat surface and place some filling of corn paste on the same. Sandwich using the other paneer piece.
Heat some oil on a non stick tava (griddle) and cook the stuffed paneer pieces, till they turn golden brown from both the sides.
- Serve hot with a cup of tea/coffee.
