It is amazing how four ingredients merely mixed together can create such a tongue-tingling effect!


Indeed, the perfectly balanced textures and exciting flavours of ingredients like paneer, spring onions and Schezuan sauce truly excite the palate, more so when the mixture is packed inside plain flour wrappers and deep-fried till perfectly crisp.


Enjoy the Paneer Parcels immediately on preparation, to enjoy the exciting crispness.

For the dough to make the Paneer Parcels

  1. Take a clean and large deep bowl and add the flour and salt in it.
  2. Slowly add the hot water, little by little, and start forming a dough. These is no particular measure of how much water we have to use. We use hot water so that the dough retains moisture and does not get dry.
  3. Start kneading it into a soft dough. Once the dough is properly kneaded, cover it and keep it aside.

Paneer Stuffing for the Paneer Parcels

  1. In a deep bowl, add the crumbled paneer. Grated paneer can also be used here.
  2. Add the schezuan sauce for a tangy, spicy garlic flavor. Since paneer does not have a flavor on its own, we add 1/4 cup of the sauce.
  3. Also add some spring onions and salt for a sharp taste and some crispiness. You can even make similar Spring onion parcels.
  4. Mix all the ingredients very well so that the sauce and spring onions are evenly distributed in the paneer. Keep aside.

How to proceed for the Paneer Parcels

  1. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions.
  2. Flatten a portion of dough on the rolling board.
  3. Using a little plain flour, roll the dough into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle.
  4. Place 1 tbsp of the paneer stuffing in the center of the rolled dough.
  5. Fold 2 opposite sides of the circle over the stuffing, overlapping each other slightly.
  6. Now fold the remaining 2 sides to seal the stuffing well. Gently press the folded side to seal the parcel. If it is not properly sealed, the chances are that it will open up while frying.
  7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 to make 11 more paneer parcels.
  8. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan. Only when the oil is hot, place a few paneer parcels in the oil. The oil should not be too hot or else the parcels will burn.
  9. Deep fry them on a medium flame, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides. Flip the parcels in between to ensure even cooking on both sides.
  10. Drain on an absorbent paper.
  11. Serve immediately with honey chilli sauce.

   Hi Sunita, We would suggest not to give this to a pregnant woman. First of all, it has maida as the ingredient and secondly it is deep-fried. Not really a good option.
