  • In a large bowl, add cottage cheese, coriander, chillies and cooked curry and pepper oats. Mix well till all the flavours are well incorporated

  • Make balls of this mixture big enough to fit the pancake puff pan. If the mixture is too sticky, wet your palms with some cold water

  • Roll/dredge the balls in dried oats. Make sure to cover the balls evenly with oats as this makes for a crunchy exterior

  • Heat the pancake puff pan on medium low and add 1/2 teaspoon Saffola oil in all the rounds

  • Once the pan is heated, carefully put the cheese balls in the rounds and cook on medium low turning the balls every minute. Continue to cook while turning the cheese balls constantly till you get an even golden brown colour

  • Serve hot with tomato basil sauce
