Paneer strips are an easy-to-make tasty snack that can be made within minutes. I learnt this recipe from my mother.

What you need

Paneer-100 gm

Fresh mint-1/4 cup

Fresh coriander-1/4 cup

Garlic cloves - 3

Lemon juice - 3 tbsp

Chilli powder - 1 tsp

Refined maida (or) Rice flour - 1/4 cup

Salt - to taste

Olive oil – 250 ml

Cooking instructions

Grind together mint leaves, coriander leaves and garlic to a coarse paste. Cut the paneer into thick strips. Place them on a plate and add salt and chilli powder on the strips. Spread the paste prepared on both sides of the strips. Dab a little flour over them. Keep aside for 3 minutes. Heat olive oil in a pan. Dip the strips in it and fry. Garnish with curry leaves or coriander leaves.
