Paneer Potato Cutlet

Paneer (पनीर) / Indian cottage cheese is such a versatile ingredient, just like Potato (आलू). Paneer is huge source of Protein (especially for a vegetarian). Paneer cutlets are soft and tasty in every bite. I thought of infusing Paneer with Potato to make something which is full of carbs and protein. It is a great snack, easy to make and super tasty.

Best part is people who are on fast can have it, as well as non-fasting people relish it.
