An easy but irresistible snack, made by rolling a succulent paneer mixture into samosa patties, and deep-frying the cigar-shaped rolls. The use of chilli-garlic sauce and spring onions to flavour the stuffing gives it an unmistakable Chinese touch. The Paneer Chilli Cigars are handily sized, and look very appetizing too, making them perfect to serve at cocktail parties. Make these rolls with fresh paneer to get the most enjoyable texture.

Hi. Our shop bought cottage cheese is very wet and yours is quite dry and crumbly. Could I use feta instead? Thank you.
