Think spicy and our indian masalas are sure to spring up in your mind! yes, this cutlet features a blend of common indian spices, ensuring a top rating by our desi taste buds. The mint chutney used in this recipe uses a good lot of onions, resulting in a very unusual flavour. When teamed with mayonnaise, it gives the spicy paneer burger a tantalising taste that will linger in your tongue for a long time. Another exceptional point in this recipe is that it requires a lot of bread crumbs for binding, since the paneer is cooked.
- Combine the curds, chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger paste, garlic paste, besan, chaat masala, dried fenugreek leaves, garam masala and salt in a bowl and mix well.
- Add the paneer, mix well and keep aside to marinate for 15 minutes.
