Are you avoiding chicken because of bird flu? Replace chicken with paneer to make paneer lollipop. This crispy and crunchy snack is perfect for weekend get-together, whether with family or friends. It is easy to make and you just need half an hour to prepare and present this evening/party appetiser. The tiny paneer balls with tooth picks stuck in them to pick and hold make for an ideal finger food. Pair them with tomato sauce or chutney and enjoy your evening with this satiating and, of course, delicious snack.
To make the lollipop, paneer is grated and mixed with boiled potatoes and chopped capsicum for extra flavour and crunch. If you want to make it spicy, add both green chillies and red chilli powder, or skip green chillies if making for kids. Spice powders like cumin powder, garam masala powder and chaat masala add some more flavours and zing to the dish.
If you want to keep it light, you can also bake the paneer lollipop and cook in air fryer for a healthier, protein-rich nosh. Cooking it in oven or air fryer should give you the same crunch that you will be looking for. The crispy balls will have soft and mushy paneer filling inside, making this paneer snack one of the best ones that you can make quickly at home.
