Party bon-bons

Cheese Pesto Bon-bons!

These do remind me of little sweet parcels but filled with savoury cheese. Perfect for a cocktail party or to enjoy as appetisers.

Make your own filling of choice?


36 Wonton wrappers

1 cup Paneer or ricotta; at room temperature
2 finely chopped fresh green chillies
1 tbsp finely chopped corriander
1/4 tsp red chili flakes
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/4 full cream
Salt to taste

Mix it all well. should be soft to touch but dry enough to fill.

Using wonton wrappers. fill 1 tsp of the mixture, roll like a cigar, pinch the sides with your thumb and chill. 
When ready to eat, heat a pan with oil and deep fry for 2 minutes until crispy golden brown. Drain on a paper towel and serve it with tamarind chutney.


This recipe can be adjusted according to taste.

Salt must be added to the paneer for flavour.
Other options to add to this are a touch of garlic, crushed fried onions, freshly cracked pepper, paprika or ancho chili powder.

You can freeze these bon-bons before frying for up to 1 month. Defrost in the fridge overnight before using. 

Wonton wrappers are available at all markets. You can use filo pastry to do the same or samosa wraps. Wrap them like cigars or samosas if you prefer.
