Roasted and Coarsely ground Peanuts    2 Tbsp
Oil                                                             For deep frying


* Strain the oil from mango pickle masala and set aside.
* Trim the pieces of bread slices and keep aside.
* Mash the paneer and add peanuts, chopped cilantro and strained mango pickle masala. Mix very nicely.
* Take broad bowl of water for wetting the bread.
