Paneer and Corn Fritters

In past few weeks the weather in my city has been very gloomy. Sun was constantly under clouds and it drizzled continuously. Hence we had to sit indoors waiting for the sun to reappear. In the meantime I got an idea to prepare paneer and corn pakodas. Not only it would lift the spirits in such a gloomy period but it would also make me lousy. Hope you like the look of the fritters as I enjoyed preparing them.

Serves: 15 fritters, Preparation time:15-20 minutes

400 gms grated Paneer (cottage cheese)
1/2 cup Corn kernels (bhutte ke dane)
1/2 Green peas, coarsely ground
1 Potato (boiled and mashed)
2 Bread slice
1 tsp Ginger (finely chopped)
2 Green chillies (finely chopped)
1/2 Black pepper powder
1 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tbsp Cornflour
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Spices to be mixed with grated paneer :
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Garam masala
1 tsp Chaat masala
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp fresh Coriander (chopped)

Knead the grated paneer till it is smooth. Grind corn kernels coarsely. Heat 3 tsp oil in a pan,  add cumin seeds and let them splutter. Add ginger, green chillies, salt, pepper and saute over medium heat for few minutes. Let this mixture cool down. 
In a large plate mix paneer with mashed potatoes, peas mixture, cornflour and all the spices that is mentioned above. Moisten dry bread and squeeze the extra water out. Mix together with paneer mixture. Grease your palm to prevent the mixture from sticking to your hand. Divide the mixture into 15 equal parts and shape them like long cylindrical shape with oval edges. Heat oil in a frying pan and deep fry these over medium flame till golden. Place the fritters on absorbent paper. Serve hot with tomato sauce or Coriander / Mint chutney.
