3-in-1 patties

 This is a love triangle among cilantro leaves, paneer and soya chunks. For me cilantro is full of colour, paneer is yum and soya is nutritious. So the triangle story happened and in the end taking the flavours into consideration it was cilantro who won, but I won't say who the partner is.. that is for you to find out. Hope you like it.


Ingredients
  • Cilantro leaves - 1 bunch
  • Paneer - 75 gm
  • Soya chunks - 75 gm
  • Ginger - 1 inch piece chopped
  • Green chilli - 4 big (adjust accordingly)
  • Potato - 1 small
  • Onion - 1 small chopped
  • Oil for sauteing and shallow frying
  • Salt to taste




Method
  • Boil and cook the potatoes, crumble and keep aside
  • Make a paste ginger and green chilli
  • Heat oil in a pan
  • Add ginger green chilli paste and onion. Saute until onions are pink. Keep aside.
  • Chop the cilantro very finely. I ran it in a chopper. Keep aside.
  • Boil 3 cups water. Add soya chunks to it and let it soak for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, drain and gently press the chunks to remove all excess water from it.
  • In a mixer grinder or food processor grind the chunks without adding water (like you do for beef in beef cutlets). Keep aside.
  • Crumble the paneer pieces.
  • Now all you have to do is put all the above in a bowl. Add the salt to taste and mix really well.
  • Make into round patties and shallow fry.




This patti will surely brighten up your sandwich.
I can't find a better name for this.  Can anyone suggest. :)
