Ingredients
  

Green Chutney (paste)

  • 40 g picked mint leaves
  • 20 g coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp amchoor optional
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 cm cube ginger
  • 1 green chilli
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt

Paneer Bites

  • 500 g Paneer
  • 120 g Flour
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 tsp amchoor powder (optional)
  • 4 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Cooking spray as needed

Instructions
 

  • Add all chutney ingredients to a blender and blitz into paste consistency, then season to taste with salt. Add more lemon juice if needed. Set aside
  • Place the paneer on a chopping board with the short side towards you. Cut it down the middle into two long thin rectangles. Turn the paneer 90 degrees, so that the paneer rectangles are horizontal, then slice them into 2mm thick strips.
  • Take a strip of paneer, add a little chutney on top, then sandwich it with another strip to enclose the chutney. Repeat until all the strips are finished.
  • To a bowl add your flour, then whisk in the cumin, ½ tsp of salt and amchoor. In another bowl add your finely crushed cornflakes. Whisk eggs in a final bowl with 2 tbsp water.
  • Dip a paneer chutney sandwich into the seasoned flour, then into the egg mixture and finally into the cornflakes, pressing the crumbs into the paneer until it’s well coated. Set aside. Repeat with all the paneer and chutney sandwich bites.

Cooking

    Pro Crisp / Duo Crisp

    • Once all the paneer is coated, place the paneer bites into the double layered air fryer basket. Spray the bites with cooking spray then place the air frying basket into the Duo Crisp. Secure the air frying lid. Select air fry, set the temperature to 180C, and the timer to 10 minutes. Cook the paneer bites, turning half way to ensure even cooking, until crisped and golden.

    Vortex Range

    • Once all the paneer is coated, place the paneer bites into the air fryer chamber. Spray the bites with cooking spray then close the chamber. Select air fry, set the temperature to 180C, and the timer to 10 minutes. Cook the paneer bites, turning half way to ensure even cooking, until crisped and golden.
    • Remove the paneer bites and serve immediately with your favourite dipping sauce or chutney.
