Here’s the recipe for Paneer Mystery Balls

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Soaking time: 6 hours


  • 500 gms green moong daal (green gram split)
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • Green chillies as per taste
  • 2 tbsp bengal gram flour

  • Oil for frying


Step 1


Step 2

  • Soak the green gram in water for 5 to 6 hours.
  • Drain excess water. Grind to a coarse paste.
  • Add very little water as we want a thick batter.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves, green chillies and ginger paste salt and asafoetida. Add bengal gram flour. Mix everything and keep aside.


Step 3

  • Cut paneer into cubes and put aside.
  • In a pan, heat oil for frying.
  • Take paneer cubes, dip it in the moong dal batter and make balls.
