Pockets made of boiled potatoes are stuffed with a luscious paneer and sweet corn mixture and deep-fried to make a really irresistible snack, which can be served with tea, or as a starter or cocktail accompaniment. These mouth-watering Paneer and Corn Croquettes have a desi aura about them, thanks to the use of peppy spice powders like garam masala and amchur. The stuffing also has a unique, succulent texture because the corn is crushed and the paneer is grated, which makes these ingredients mix and mingle well with each other and with the flavour enhancers. Let each bite of this snack melt in your mouth, and watch your spirits soar high with delight!
