Two types of cheese come together in a unique manner to delight the diner!

An outer layer of paneer and onions with taste-enhancers like green chillies and ginger wraps a centre of gooey molten cheese.

The crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth exterior and cheesy inner core of the Paneer Cheese Balls makes every bite a great experience.

Enjoy it hot and fresh. you can also try other starters like Paneer Achari Tikka or Corn Cheese Balls .
