Baked Oats Crusted Paneer Fingers

Paneer, the famous Indian cheese is one of our family favourite cheese sinceever we tasted in an Indian restaurant. My fridge will always have a packet of paneer,in case if i forget to pick the storebought ones, i'll make myself at home.Usually i'll freeze homemade paneer cubes for later use as they are really handy to cook as anything whenever we feel like having something with our favourite Indian cheese.

Coming to the paneer fingers, usually i'll deep fry them and my kids just love it, as i choosed an interesting theme for this first week of blogging marathon i simply baked them with oats as crust, yep i choosed Kid's delight-healthy makeover as theme. Obviously my three days of blogging marathon for this week is going to be kid's friendly dishes with healthy twist in it. If you dont like baking, you can go very well to deep fry or else shallow fry.These fingers tastes absolutely super delicious when served with ketchup. Check out the marathoners running this 22nd edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to my own event Healthy Diet- Healthy Finger Food guest hosted by Preeti of Isingcakes and  to Kid's Delight-Healthy Makeover guest hosted by Rasi, event by Srivalli
