Tofu-Paneer Cutlet

Bought a large pack of Tofu from Costco hoping to make Tofu-Paneer  fritters. But ended up making  cutlets that turned out to be really  good . Kids enjoyed eating them with the ketchup.


Paneer/Indian cottage Cheese    – ½ block -7 oz (Nanak Paneer)
Tofu                                          - 2 small blocks – around 9.5 Oz
Green chilies                              - 2  (finely chopped)
Coriander Leaves                      - handful ( finely Chopped)
Coriander seeds                        -  1 tsp crushed
Cumin powder                          - ½ tsp
Chili Powder                             - ½ tsp
Amchur powder                        - ½  tsp
Garam masala                           - ½ tsp       

For Dipping & Coating

All Purpose flour/Maida            - 5 tbs
Bread  Crumbs                         - 1 cup


    In a wide bowl, make a thick batter of maida by gradually adding water. Spread the bread crumbs on a plate.  Crumble the paneer and tofu and mix it with remaining ingredients. Roll the paneer–tofu mixture into slightly flattened balls. Dip them in the flour batter and make sure it is uniformly coated with the batter.  Then roll them on the bread crumbs. Heat oil in a kadai. Once the oil is heated, deep fry them in medium heat.

Enjoy the cutlets with Ketchup or Chili Sauce.
