Oats Spinach and Paneer Cakes

Last Jan Month, I got canola oil 1 litre pack as a gift from Hadson. With this pack, I found a recipe booklet written by chef Komal Taneja. For the theme of Cooking from Cookbook, I choose “Oats Spinach and Paneer Cakes” from this booklet. It’s really amazing and healthy snack for everyone. We have to need spinach, paneer, oats and potatoes for making kebab and serve with mint chutney. This recipe is great option for monsoon and winter days.

Canola oil is really healthier oil, has the lowest saturated bad fats amongst all cooking oils, very high monounsaturated good fats, rich content of omega-3 essential fatty acids and high vitamin E. It’s prepared from the crushed seeds of the yellow canola flower.
