Palak Paneer Balls

Palak Paneer Balls

Ya you got it right. This power packed snack comprises spinach & paneer (cottage cheese).

Paneer has a bland flavour and thus blends well with any ingredient. Kids love it very much. Here I am sharing recipe of this yummy snack with you.

I didn’t want to use potato for starters, so i got this idea and my kids love it like anything.

1cup chopped spinach (palak)
1 cup crumbled paneer (cottage cheese)
4tbsp cornflour
salt to taste
2 processed cheese cubes , each cut into 6 pieces(optional)
1 tsp green chilli paste or 1tsp chilli flex
Seasme seeds for rolling
oil for deep-frying

For Serving:
tomato ketchup / sweet chilli sauce


  1. Combine the paneer, spinach, salt, green chilli paste and cornflour in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Divide the mixture into equal portions and shape each portion into a small round.
  3. Press a little in the centre of each round to make a depression, place a piece of cheese cube in it and again shape them into a round ball.(this step is optional)
  4. Roll the balls in the seasme seeds till they are evenly coated from all the sides.
  5. Heat the oil in a kadhai and deep-fry 3 to 4 balls at a time till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides.
  6. Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot with tomato ketchup or sweet chilli sauce.

Handy tip:
Insert a toothpick or a breadstick to make the cheese balls look more appealing to your little ones.
