Paneer Cheese Corn Balls is a party appetizer. Fun to make and delightful to eat. These cheesy croquettes melt in your mouth while the corn offers the crunch.
I know that you are extremely busy charting out your holiday plans, deciding on the Christmas menu and maybe finishing some last minute shopping. However that doesn’t mean that you don’t get to hit that pause button to smell the flowers or do a little dance. After all, it’s your holiday season too and you deserve a break! Take some time out to relax and pamper yourself. My ways of de-stressing other than a massage, are cooking and eating – and I’m about to give you a recipe that will make your stress melt away. Read on!!
Paneer Cheese Corn Balls made with Salemville® Amish Blue Cheese Crumbles is the ultimate appetizer that will take away all your “blues” ;-). I had my BFF’s family recipe with me that I tweaked a little bit to create this delicious crowd pleaser. In this busy time of the year, this recipe comes as a breather. Simple, hassle free and truly delicious!!
Salemville® cheese wants to inspire you in its own way to slow down for the holidays with a special holiday giveaway – now through December 31st, you can enter to win a grill smoker valued at $1,000. Salemville® award-winning blue-veined cheeses are crafted in the heart of Wisconsin, America’s Dairyland. Salemville® cheeses are renowned for their smooth, earthy flavor that perfectly accentuates burgers, salads and cheese plates. The line’s rich and creamy texture is dotted with gorgeous veining and serves as the perfect counterpart to dessert wines. Their cheeses are rich in calcium and contain no preservatives or chemical additives.
Here’s how to make this awesome dish. In a bowl, add grated paneer, processed cheese, minced garlic and green chillies, chopped cilantro, Salemville® Amish Blue Cheese Crumbles and cooked corn (Boil corn in salt water, drain and use).You can also coarsely grind the corn, but I have used it whole.
Then add some white sauce to bind the mixture together. Check the seasoning and add more salt, and pepper if required. Shape into small balls. Combine flour with water to get a coating consistency. Dip these balls in the flour-water mixture and then roll in bread crumbs. Keep these refrigerated for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile heat oil for frying. Fry these corn balls in medium flame until they turn golden. Strain onto a paper towel to soak the excess oil.
Serve them hot along with ketchup/chutney. I highly recommend this lip smacking snack for you to try. Holiday food is all about rich ingredients like cheese and Salemville® Amish Blue Cheese is all about that! These Paneer Cheese Corn Balls are soft and gooey on the inside while light and crispy on the outside. This can be your go-to recipe for your next house party, baby shower, brunch, date night, Christmas party or New Year’s eve dinner. However, let me warn you in advance that you need to make lots of it as it’s all going to disappear within minutes.
