Aloo Paneer Kebab/Potato Paneer Kebab

Potato and paneer in kebabs, cant ask more rite. Both these two ingredients are our family favourite and they have their important place in our weekly menu. Though i dont like to get paneer from stores, Indian stores are loaded with this Indian cheese. Store bought cheeses are really handy when we dont have enough time to prepare paneer cheese at home. Last week, when we went to Indian store, i couldnt resist to pick a packet of paneer. After preparing a paneer curry, there were some leftover paneer cubes sitting in my fridge. Since i want to give a second life, i went on preparing this ultimate aloo paneer kebabs.

Very easy to dish out, this kebabs makes an excellent starter or snacks when served along with some spicy chutney or sauces. Definitely a crowd pleaser, a kid's friendly kebab as well. Since kids love potatoes very much, this kebabs goes directly to their favourite dish. I picked Kebab Varieties as this week's theme for blogging marathon, am posting this Indian cheese-potato kebab. This panfried kebabs are very simple to make but they are dangerously addictive than you can imagine.

Agree with you ...these kababs must be addictive as both potato as well as paneer themselves are almost everybody's favorite, so when they combine together must have created wonders
