  • 6 slices bread , for breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup paneer or cottage cheese , grated
  • 1/2 cup cheese , grated
  • 1/2 cup hung curd or greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup corn , boiled or frozen
  • 1/4 cup mixed color bell peppers , finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp cilantro , finely chopped
  • 1 tsp green chilies , finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ginger , minced
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/4 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • salt , to taste
  • oil , for frying



  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs


  1. Add the bread in a food processor or grinder and pulse until they become a coarse powder. Don’t over-pulse since we don’t want it to clump up.

  2. Transfer the breadcrumbs into a bowl and add in all of the other ingredients and mix well. Make sure that your yogurt doesn’t have a lot of moisture because otherwise the mixture will become too wet. If the mixture is too dry, you can add more yogurt to it.

  3. Apply some oil on your palms and shape the mixture into small croquettes, using about 1-2 tbsp of your mixture for each. I ended up making about 15 croquettes.

  4. Mix all purpose flour, red chili powder, salt and water, making a slurry. It should be a buttermilk consistency, not too thick or thin.

  5. Spread panko breadcrumbs on a plate.

  6. Now, dip the croquettes into the slurry, making sure that they are nicely coated and then roll them into the breadcrumbs.

  7. Fry on medium heat until they are golden brown.
