If you are a big fan of paneer and an even more ardent lover of the crispy crunch and lingering aroma of til then this recipe is just for you!

In this unique Sesame Paneer recipe, soya sauce is used in the batter rather than as a topping or as a marinade. This gives the snack a tongue-tickling flavour, which complements the taste of sesame very well indeed.

Schezuan sauce is a great accompaniment for this exciting snack, so keep some handy for serving.

When serving for a Cocktail Party skewer the Sesame Paneer pieces with a toothpick and serve, it's easier to pick and consume.
