Corn Paneer Pakora - A healthy recipe for evening time snack

It is definitely a difficult task to find out the snack that can be served for the kids in the evening but I got this recipe from a friend which I tried and it turned out too good too. Infact I am planning to make it as a starter dish too.

Fresh or Frozen corn - 2 cups
Paneer - 100 gms
Onions - 2 medium
Ginger -  1 inch piece
Garlic - 6 flakes
Green chilly - 2 nos
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup
Cumin/ Jeera Powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilly Powder - 1/2 tsp
Bengal Gram Flour - 6 tbsp
Amchur Powder - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1 cup
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

Soak the frozen corn for a while to remove ice.  Grate the cottage cheese. Blend the corn in a blender to make it coarse. Grind ginger and garlic together. Cut the green chillies into fine pieces. In a pan heat oil, add ginger garlic paste and after a minute add the crushed corn and stir fry it. Add salt and mix well. Add 1/2 cup of milk and bring it to a creamy texture. When the corn gets cooked remove from flame and let it cool. Add the finely chopped onion, paneer, chillies, cumin powder, chilly powder, amchur powder and coriander leaves. Add in the besan flour to bind it. Add a bit more salt if needed. If the mixture is too thick, it can be thinned by adding a little more milk. Make small balls or cylindrical shaped pieces and fry it out in hot oil. Turn the pieces around till they become golden in colour. Remove from oil and drain excess oil.

If you are making it for a party, it can be make in different shapes like square or heart shaped too.

The corn can be cooked and then blended too.
