Paneer cutlet recipe | Millet paneer cutlet

Paneer cutlet with millet, i tried this for the first time in a cookery class here in Singapore. Even when i was trying this at home before the class, it was a loved by everyone. Also it was a super hit recipe in the class too. Paneer and cooked millet are the main ingredients and gram flour |kadalai maavu is used for binding. It is a perfect starter for parties. Also you can stuff this inside the burger and serve for kids. I won’t say this is a healthy cutlet recipe but you can make it healthy by cooking the cutlets on a pan.
