Paneer fritters are a unique preparation of chilli garlic flavoured paneer coated with crushed papad and deep-fried to perfect golden brown. The innovative use of papad instead of bread crumbs makes it all the more crisp and flavourful. It is a wonderful accompaniment to tea or juice and will be loved by all.
