Paneer kofta


I prepared this yummy paneer kofta when making Malai Kofta. After tasting some koftas, I felt it was a easy tea time snack. Infact that day we ate some Kofta just like that! I used the paniyaram pan, and it reduced oil usage significantly.


Paneer grated – 200 grams

Pepper powder – 1/4 tsp

Cardamom powder – 1/4 tsp (Optional)

Cornstarch/ All purpose flour  – 2 tablespoon (I used all purpose flour)

Rice flour – 1 tsp

Sugar – 1/8 tsp (Optional)

Salt – as needed

Mixed nut – 2 tbsp (You can finely chop or use blender)


  • Grate the paneer and mash it with hand. Add all purpose flour and rice flour, salt, pepper powder, sugar and cardamom powder



  • Make a soft dough and divide into small portion  and stuff chopped nuts into each portion. Shape them into ballsIMG_8823


  • Take a Panniyaram pan and once the pan is hot, grease them with oil and place the balls. Cook till they are golden brown both sides


  • Delicious easy and quick Kofta is ready. Serve it with ketchup


My Notes:

  • Add cornflour/ all purpose flour if you think its not binded properly
  • Instead of using paniyaram pan can also deep fry them or bake it in 350 degree Fahrenheit

 Taking this to Fiesta Friday 27

    Awesome idea. Love the fact you used the browning pan instead of deep frying them. Makes them healthier 🙂
