Recipe Notes
  1. If you want you can add few other veggies too like capsicum , grated carrot , etc .
  2. Take care that potatoes while boiling don’t absorb excess water . If they do , after cooking place the potatoes on tissue paper so that excess water goes .
  3. The final paneer cutlet dough should be tight but not gooey . If its loose you can add some bread or cornflour to it to absorb extra moisture .
