The mint chutney used in this recipe uses a good lot of onions, resulting in a very unusual flavour. When teamed with mayonnaise, it gives the spicy paneer burger a tantalising taste that will linger in your tongue for a long time.

Another exceptional point in this recipe is that it requires a lot of bread crumbs for binding, since the paneer is cooked.
