Popcorn Paneer are wonderful mini crispies, lip smacking snack made with fresh homemade cheese (paneer), mixed in spices fried and tossed with herbs to give that extra punch to taste.
In a bowl, combine any processed grated cheese, tomato ketchup, cumin powder, red chilli powder, pinch of salt, grated paneer, all-purpose flour, and bread crumbs. Mix all these ingredients together and knead to form dough.
Gently squeeze out small popcorn size dumplings and keep aside or else roll the dough into thin cylindrical shape and cut into small piece (as shown in video).
In a plate, mix equal quantities of corn flour, all-purpose flour and salt and mix well. Remove half the quantity of the flours in another plate.
Add little water in one portion of the flour quantity and make a smooth paste free of lumps.
Drop the small dumpling into the flour batter and coat them well.
Remove and drop into the other portion of the dry flour and keep aside.
Coat the entire dumplings in the same process.
Heat oil in and pan and when the oil is hot, fry the coated dumplings on medium hot oil until they turn slight golden in colour and crisp.
For the popcorn masala, in a bowl, add chaat masala, parmesan cheese (optional), marjoram and oregano, mix the spices together and sprinkle over the fried popcorn paneer.
