Corn & paneer kebabs

I absolutely love kebabs/ croquettes as an appetizer. Also it is a great finger food for kids and adults alike.

My original plan was to make only corn kebabs like I do usually. But I happened to have some paneer , so thought of incorporating it too. These corn and paneer kebabs turned out extremely delicious , even better than the normal corn kebabs. This mixture actually mimics a non vegetarian kebab mixture, Seriously you wouldn’t know that these are vegetarian.Crisp exterior and succulent on the inside, this kebab is  truly a foodie’s delight! Do give them a try! 🙂 Continue reading →

There are no spice powders used here, the cumin seeds and the humble onion add enough flavor, along with the ginger and garlic. Onions should always be sauteed on a low heat, this breaks down the natural sugar present in onions, making it sweet. The heavy cream definitely adds to a rich finish, but it can be avoided . For a vegan version, you can substitute paneer with tofu. Continue reading →

Layers of goodness, I say 🙂 Continue reading →
