Vegetarian Malai Kebab


Over the weekend we had some dear friends over for the first time since we have moved to Singapore and I wanted to make something really special and some thing new for them. Even though I have a full functioning kitchen up and running I am still not very well settled and don’t have many ingredients for elaborate cooking so I came up with these kebab recipe with whatever ingredients I had in my pantry.

When I developed this recipe, I wasn’t very sure how they are going to be in texture but let me tell you these were incredibly soft so I decided to name them Vegetarian Malai Kebab. I served these with spicy tomato ketchup but you can serve them with fresh coriander chutney.


  • 1 cup grated paneer
  • 1 big potato grated
  • ½ cup milk powder
  • 1 inch ginger finely chopped
  • 1 or to taste green chilli finely chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ea garam masala and chaat masala
  • Handful of coriander finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rice powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or butter to shallow fry


Mix everything together and make small flat kebabs.

Shallow fry them in oil till they are golden brown, serve them hot with ketchup or coriander chutney.
