For marinating the paneer apply salt, chilli powder, green chilli, coriander powder, chaat masala, kasoori methi, ginger paste, garlic paste and chopped coriander. Rub it all on to the paneer to coat it evenly and leave aside for 30mins.


For spicy smoked mayo mix together chilli sauce and mayonnaise. Take a piece of cinnamon and burn it over the stove till it catches fire and smoulders. Place this burning piece in a small glass bowl and place this bowl on to the chilli mayo. Pour some ghee on top while it it still burning and immediately cover the mayonnaise to trap all the smoke in. Leave aside for 15mins for mayo to become smoky. Give a good mix and our smoked chilli mayo is ready.


For coating the paneer we need plain flour in bowl no1. In a separate bowl add flour, salt and some water to make a thick slurry. And in the 3rd bowl place sufficient bread crumbs. Now dunk the paneer into plain flour and dust off the excess. dunk it into the slurry and then coat it with bread crumbs. Pat on all sides and then deep fry till golden brown from outside. Remove and keep aside.

Now cut the burger buns into 2 and apply some butter on the inside. Heat a pan and toast the burger bun on to the buttered side.

Now place the base of the buns on to a chopping board.Smear some mustard and then place lettuce leaf. Place the paneer patty, slices of tomato, onions, gherkins and a generous spoon of our smoked mayonnaise, pepper powder, a cheese slice and cover it with the top of the burger bun. Press it slightly and our spicy paneer burger is ready. Serve it with hot fries.


Tips and tricks while making a Burger

be careful with the height of the burger, flatter burgers are easier to eat and bit into.
Do not over fill the burger or else filling will start to fall out with the first bite.
You can go creative and innovative with flavours of bun as much as the filling.
You can marinate and crumb the paneer and keep it in deep freezer to use within 4weeks.
Once burger is ready consume within few minutes.
Toast the insides of the burger to make sure they do not get soggy.


How to cut a burger

Use two 6 inch satay sticks to skewer the burger on two sides, away from he center. Place your fingers on top of the burger bun and using a bread knife and cut the burger from the centre in gentle but firm sawing motion. The trick here is not to press the knife but do back & forth motion to evenly cut through the burger. The two skewers should support the assembled burgers, avoiding it from breaking apart as you cut through.
