paneer cheese balls is a deep fried Indian starter made from paneer, processed cheese, onions and spices.

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

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

The crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth exterior and cheesy inner core of the paneer cheese balls makes every bite a great experience.

Notes on paneer cheese balls. 1. In a deep bowl, take crumbled paneer. You can also grate it using a grater. Ensure you use fresh paneer which is soft and moist. 2. Then add finely chopped onions to it. They give a nice bite to the paneer cheese balls on frying. 3. Add the rice flour. They give the cottage cheese and cheese balls a very nice crispy texture on frying. 4. Add the besan and cornflour. They bind together all the ingredients very well. 5. Bring all the sides together, seal them completely and roll them again lightly. If you don’t do this properly, there are chances of the ball breaking in the oil.

Enjoy cottage cheese balls hot and fresh. You can also try other starters like Paneer Achari Tikka or Corn Cheese Balls.
