There are starters, and then there are starters! Usually the same items are served so I was on the look out for something quite different. One such interesting starter is Paneer Tikka Kathi Rolls which you will find elsewhere in this blog.

Here's another cocktail snack or a starter which can be served in an attractive way, which I have adapted from the recipe by Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor.

I have sliced the paneer cubes to be of a bigger size to make them easy to eat with a toothpick or a cocktail fork. I have also reduced the ginger to suit my taste. Instead of using a grill tawa, I have
directly roasted the papad on the flame.

  • Paneer (Cottage Cheese), 150 gms
  • Pappads, 8
  • Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Ginger, grated, 1/2 " piece
  • Green Chillies, chopped, 2
  • Red Chilli Powder, 1/2 tsp
  • Chaat Masala, 1 tsp
  • Mint leaves, chopped, 4-5
  • Coriander leaves, finely chopped, 1 tbsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Mint leaves, to garnish

In a kadhai, heat oil and when it gets hot, add ginger and saute for one minute
Add the green chillies and continue to saute
Add the paneer cubes, salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala, mint leaves and coriander leaves
Mix well and take the pan off the heat. Keep aside to cool.
Cut each pappad into half and roast them directly on a flame 
Shape each half into a cone immediately
Place each of the pappad cones in a short glass
Fill each of the pappad cones with the paneer stuffing prepared earlier
Serve garnished with a mint leaf
