Cooks Wisdom

Tip 1

1. Make sure the oil is not too hot, else the outside will cook faster than the insides.

Tip 2

2. You can spice up the paneer with spices like red chilli, corriander and garam masala. I have kept the spices to minimum but the flavour comes from the ground paste. 

Tip 3

3. You can use cooked veggies/ spinach to this cutlets. For more flavour use corriander leaves too.

Tip 4

4. Make sure that the water used to boil potatoes are discarded and then mash the potatoes. In case there is more moisture in the cutlets then used some breadcrumbs to bind the cutlets.
