Betel Leaf Stuffed Panner

Panner the best source of protein for vegetarians, can be served either fried or baked or just  cooking it in any gravy. I prepared many panner dishes as appetizers , so thought of cooking it this way by stuffing it with betel leaves and served as a snack to my guests,it was just mouth watering !!!!!!!

Panner cubes (medium sized ) 20
Betel Leaves 2 (small or medium )
Green chilies 3
Cilantro 1/4 cup chopped
Curry leaves some chopped
Dry coconut Powder  1  to 2 large table spoons
Cashews some crushed 
Kowa 1/4 cup

Salt for taste 
Tuti Fruti 1 table spoon

Step 5: Stuff the panner cubes with stuff , make sure it does not spill out , just pinch the cubes softly and clean the extra spill, this does the work 

Step 6: Now dip the panner cubes in prepared batter , let the extra batter drip , then roll them in bread crumbs
Step 7: Take a frying pan  add some oil for shallow frying, when ready and hot add the panner cubes and fry in medium flame until they reach golden brown color .

  • Don't add the betel laves more , as they have a different ; unique taste with a spicy touch .
  • Tuti fruti is added to balance the taste .
  • You can deep fry the cubes instead of shallow frying
  • When preparing the stuff , make sure you make it a tight one without adding water 
  • You can add potato or any other vegetables along with betel leaf so enhance the taste
