Turkish Paneer Kababs

Hey everyone.. food-time!!

Here is a party appetizer I made recently, for a Turkish potluck with vegetarian guests! :)

Fig. 1. Turkish Paneer Kababs

The original recipe of my Kababs, Izgara Kofte from Turkish Cuisine, calls for meat. But I went ahead and made it with paneer to make it vegetarian. I served it with Roasted Garlic Hummus and pita. For my future reference, the above Turkish food blog has a great collection of recipes. I have also made Adana Kabab from there with minced chicken and that too turned out great, but I took no pics that time.

Paneer - crumbled, about 1 and 1/2 cups
Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
Bread crumbs - 2 slices of fresh bread crumbs made in a mixer/chopper
Dried Parsley Flakes - 2 tablespoons
Red Chili Powder - 1 tablespoon
Black Pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - to taste
Olive oil - 1 tablespoon

1) Mix all the ingredients well. Add a few drops of water if needed.
2) Roll up into tiny flat cutlets.
3) Brush the cutlets with some olive oil and place on a greased sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 F, for 20-30 minutes. Flip once around 10-15 minutes. --OR-- Pan-fry the whole lot.

These were fabulous and a welcome change from my usual potato based vegetable cutlets. Cheers!
