Ingredients
For the Filling
2 tsp oil
1 tsp Cumin seeds

1/2 cup cooked and crushed Corn Kernels
1 cup grated Paneer/Cottage Cheese

Other Ingredients

Method
Heat oil in a Deep Pan and ad the cumin seeds, When the seeds crackle, add the garlic and Ginger-Green chilli paste and Saute for a minute.  Add the corn kernels, dry mango powder, garam masala and salt and cook on a slow flame for 3 -5 minutes.  While Stirring continuously. Add the paneer and cheese, Mix well. Divide the filling into 8 equal portions and keep aside.  
Combine the Potatoes, Bread Crumbs, Salt and Pepper in a bowl, Mix well and Knead gently. Divide it into 8 equal portions and roll a portion between your palms to flatten it into a circle,  Place a portion of the filling in the centre , bring together the sides and shape them into Cylindrical Croquettes.  Repeat with the remaining ingredients.  Heat oil in a Deep Kadai, and deep fry the croquettes in batches till they turn golden brown in color from all sides and drain on absorbent paper.  Serve hot with any Sauce!!!!
These can also be made as Cutlets and Shallow fried on a Pan!!! You know, if youmwnat to make it for yourself and  are Calorie-Conscious, try this way!!! They taste great!!!! The Pepper and Potato Outer-layer and the Chewy cheese and paneer filled center, it was Divine!!!!
