Cheesy Paneer Mint Tikki

Some healthy snack for your loved ones, you can serve it as starter with a minty dip or have it the Indian way, with rice and daal. The flavors of mint blended well with the paneer and suppressed its otherwise bland taste. You may add a pinch of chat masala as well for some extra kick. 



  • Paneer – 250 gms
  • Pudina / mint leaves – a bunch
  • Cheese cubes 6 – 7
  • Ginger paste – 1 tsp
  • Garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Green chilli – as per taste
  • Curd – 2 tbsp
  • Besan / gram flour – 3-4 tbsp
  • Salt
  • Butter for shallow frying

Mash the paneer using a spatula. Now make a paste of curd, pudina/mint leaves and the green chilli with a pinch of salt and sugar. Add the mixture and ginger garlic paste to the mashed paneer. Knead well.


After 10 minutes, spinkle the besan / gram flour and knead again. You should be able to form a ball using the paneer mixture.


Now take small amount from the paneer dough and place one cheese cube at the centre.


Take some more dough and make a ball covering up the cheese cube. Cheese should not be exposed outside. Then press them lightly to form a disc or tikki and keep aside.


Prepare all the discs / tikkis and keep it in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Heat butter on a flat tawa and spread it to make a thin coating of butter onto the tawa. Place the tikki side by side and shallow fry till golden brown from both the sides.


Serve with salad and Pudina Aaam ke Chutney.
