Yummy inside and yummy outside, this dish is tasty through and through! The Crunchy Paneer Rolls are made with the right mix of paneer and potatoes flavoured with spice powders and pastes, and deep-fried with a batter coating. An innovative idea that adds to the crunchiness of this snack is to roll the batter-coated rolls in crushed vermicelli before frying. This not only gives the Crunchy Paneer Roll a very appetising appearance, it also makes it super crispy. An amazing range of textures such as the succulence of the filling and the crunch of vermicelli, not to forget the variety of interesting flavours like the spiciness of garam masala and the tanginess of amchur, make this a unique and irresistible snack!

   Hi Purvi, Happy to know you liked the recipe. Ensure that you mix the ingredients very well. Also, deep-fry them on a medium flame and in batches this will cook them nicely.
