Paneer recipes go well with all the kids. My daughter loves paneer always, I used to prepare paneer in many ways like paneer 65, fry and butter masala etc. One day she asked me to make puffs but she said she don’t want veg puff.
Then I got an idea to make paneer puff, this is my own masala, which really was a great success. I used capsicum instead of green chilli, because kids like capsicum taste. I taught of adding peas to it. But I was not having peas at home so I dint add it. If u like to add peas, then it will be more tastier. I think this is an Easy recipe for people who get frequent guests at home. This takes around 30min with the preparation and baking together. So here goes our paneer recipe.
Puff pastry sheet 2 no (cut in square size) will get 4 squares
Butter for greasing
Baking sheet 1no
Paneer Cubes 1 cup
Onion (chopped finely) ¼ cup
