Paneer Spinach Balls

 HI

I look forward to this blogging marathon as I get to
try out new recipes and family looks forward as they get to taste new dishes. For
the first week of this BM#60, I will be blogging about finger foods. Now this is definitely
a crowd pleaser both for the kids and adults alike. Even the kids who are a
little fussy about eating spinach will definitely love to try this. Make this
ahead and store them in the fridge, and fry them a little before the party and you
are ready to stun your little guests. Here is the simple recipe for a very
yummy snack.
