This recipe is so quick and delicious. The outer covering of papad, gives a nice crunchy mouthfeel. Along with the crunchiness, the taste of the papad, with the paneer and green chutney is a great combination. Delicious..

This is not a v great combination.. chutney tastes doesn't come .. paneer tastes v bland.. I had to sprinkle chaat masala after frying.. I had used roasted papad instead of raw though I tried wit raw too n didn't taste well ..
