Paneer Spinach Bonda

This recipe is completely inspired from Vardhini's recipe Potato and Spinach Bonda at Zesty Palette. Vardhini has a great blog, do visit her space if you haven't...you will be amazed by her wonderful recipes, clicks and simple explanations with pictures. I made the bondas almost similar to her recipe with the main difference that I used paneer instead of potato.Even I fried the bondas using the paniyaram pan. I had to use only very less oil and a healthy snack was ready which we could munch guilt free. Thanks a lot Vardhini for sharing such a great recipe. It's sure a low calorie and delicious bonda.




What you need?

1/2 of 14oz pkt Paneer
1.5 cup chopped Spinach
1 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
a pinch Turmeric powder
Salt

For batter:
1/2 cup Besan
1/4 cup Rice flour
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
Salt


How to prepare?

Grate the paneer. Add spinach, cumin seeds, chaat masala, chilli, coriander , turmeric powders and salt to the paneer. Combine well. Make small balls out of it.

Mix all the ingredients listed under For batter along with some water. The batter shouldn't be too thin as you have to coat the balls with it.

Heat the paniyaram pan. Add 2-3 drops of oil in each hole. Dip each ball in the batter and place in each hole.Let the bottom part get brown and  carefully flip it to other side. Let it cook and get brown on the other side too.

Enjoy this wonderful snack with ketchup or some chutney.
