Paneer Cubes

BM # 16   Day 6

 For the sixth day of this marathon I wanted to make yet another paneer from the wedding spread.While working on it I failed not once but twice.The second time it was even worse.I made a smooth paste from cottage cheese and did’nt know what to do with it!!I just added whatever I could lay my hands on and came up with these cubes!!I deep fried these, may be I could have tried baking but frankly I was in no mood of more experiments!! I used the corn without soaking , which was a mistake..and wasted lot of time, so it would be a little soft.Soaking in warm water and letting it stand a while will definitely be a better option.Anyway here is a new trial…..

200gms............. cottage cheese chilly finely chopped
1...........................spring onion finely chopped
1tsp ....................corn meal soaked in warm water and squeezed out
½ cup................. fine bread crumbs
Salt to taste
Crumble the cottage cheese and blend it to a smooth paste.
Add all the ingredients.
Bind into a dough.
Make a big rectangular bar and then cut cubes.
Deep fry to a crisp golden.
Serve hot with schezwan sauce.

and I was glad that I failed on that recipe...I got a brand new delicious recipe!!
The cubes were crisp outside and soft inside and a little crunchy due to corn.The softness was a melting in the mouth kinds..guess due to blending cottage cheese to a paste.I had ready Schezwan from the hotel!!, but when I make it myself will surely post the recipe!!
