As I may have said many times, Paneer in any form is most sought out at home. Off late with the frequent power offs, we run the risk of getting the milk spoilt. So we end up with loads of paneer all the time. And of course given the fact that Konda and Peddu love Paneer dishes we always try to make different snacks with it. Hubby dear has strictly asked me not to serve him PBM, with the frequency I ended up making it.
So the next best thing we decided to do are these snacks for the kids. Konda loves all the varieties we make. This crumble paneer was what I had ready to make those Mini Cinnamon rolls. I ended up having more than I needed, so made these bondas for them. It disappeared quicker than I made them!
