Recipe: Paneer Popcorn

Perfect as a snack and quick to make is my Paneer Popcorn. I hope you enjoy making them and indulging in them šŸ˜‰

Prep time: 10 mins

Cooking time: 10 mins

Marinade mix:

  • 350 grams paneer (cottage cheese) cut into cubes
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric / haldi
  • 1/2 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tsp pepper, crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin powder

Batter:

  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water

Oil for deep frying

Additional:

1 cup of breadcrumbs

Method:

In a large mixing bowl add your cubes of paneer, ginger & garlic paste, turmeric, chilli powder, pepper, cumin powder, 1/4 corn flour, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt and add 1/4 cup water to make a batter. Add more water if required.

Mix everything well making sure that the paneer is coated well with all the spices.

In a separate bowl place the cup of breadcrumbs and take each cube of marinated paneer and roll into the breadcrumbs making sure to coat it on all sides.

Now deep fry in batches in hot oil until the paneer turns golden brown and crisp.

Serving suggestion

Serve with a cooling dip. My favourite is to blend 1/2 cup yoghurt with 1 tablespoon grated cucumber, handful of chopped coriander, 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
