Cutlet is one of the most delicious, easy, healthy and best after school snacks for kids. Paneer is an important sources of protein and calcium for vegetarian Indians. Just like most kids, mine too love paneer and these paneer cutlets are one of their favorite snacks.
This easy and tasty cutlet recipe is prepared with crumbled and moist paneer which is seasoned well and can be either pan fried or deep fried till crisp. This is an ideal party starter or appetizer too.
What I love about these paneer cutlets is that they are really soft and since these are crumb coated, you can deep fry, pan fry or air fry them.
