Paneer-yarams with Creamy Fennel dip

Paneer-yarams with Creamy Fennel dip

Just when I thought I’d exhausted all my ideas for leftover idli atta, of course, kuzhi paniyarams struck me. When I posted on Facebook for ideas with Fennel greens, I had a wonderful list of things I could do with it from a bunch of friends, each one of them gems which i plan to make-
But the easy and delicious one which was immediately executable was Priya’s suggestion of a dip – Then I decided I would also chop the greens and the bulb and use for the kuzhi paniyarams – had a block of paneer sitting around and decided to grate that into the kuzhi paniyarams making for delicious paneeryarams :)) Nothing like a little twist to tradition, what say?

Paneeryarams

I used
1/2 a bulb of fennel,
2 stalks of fennel greens,
1/4 red onion, 1 green chili,
1/2 tsp of turmeric
3/4 cup of grated paneer,
1/4 cup of grated cheddar.
I lightly sauteed the fennel, greens, onions. turmeric and chili in 1 tsp of olive oil.

Paneeryarams
Batch 1

First batch I made, I tried to do a sandwich with the cheeses. It tasted great but made for messy pouring – so I simply incorporated the paneer & cheddar into the batter and poured the second batch like that – result = awesomeness!

Batch 2

Fennel Dip
3 short stems of fennel greens chopped fine
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1tbsp low fat yogurt
1tsp of Tzatziki herb mix
1tsp salad spice mix (this is like paprika)
mix in and serve with hot Paneeryarams.

  27. Fabulous dish Priya – I love little finger-food things like this, and the dip sounds delicious 😀 By the way – what should paneer be like? I've had some before which was really melty and delicious, but the Indian restaurant I usually go to these days… they make a palak paneer and the paneer inside is almost like tofu… really dry :(
