What a delightful snack to behold – and to bite into! The Malai Paneer Dill Balls is a dainty cold starter, made by coating succulent balls of paneer with finely chopped dill leaves.

The melt-in-the-mouth texture of malai paneer together with the irresistible taste of dill leaves, which is absorbed well by the paneer, make this a super-duper treat to the palate.

The dill leaves must be chopped very finely so that it coats the paneer evenly. The vibrant green of dill looks really awesome against the white background of paneer. Packed with good fat, this dish can be enjoyed as a snack or starter .

Malai Paneer Dill Balls can be eaten immediately or stored in an air-tight container for seven days.
