Paneer puri is loved by all the paneer fans. It's a full meal in itself and there is no need for a side dish. You can even enjoy paneer poori with a pickle. It's very easy to make and tastes yummy.

1/2 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
Salt to taste
2 tsp oil + for deep frying

2. Add salt, red chilli, cumin and garam masala powders to crumbled paneer. Mix well.
3. Take a ball out of the dough and roll out into a small round. Place 1 tsp paneer mixture in the centre. Gather the edges and reshape into a ball. Flatten between your palms.
