Paneer Nuggets are a great snack, everyone would love this recipe. This is basically a deep fried snack, so calories and fat would be a bit more when compared to baked snack. Once in a while cheating ourselves for the home made snack is okay for me. I have used home made paneer here,Β you can use store bought paneer as well. Soft paneer is a better option for this recipe.
