News: KFC India's Latest Sandwich Sports a Deep-Fried Cheese Patty

KFC India's latest sandwich, the new Paneer Zinger, features a patty made of two slices of paneer cheese sandwiching a layer of "spicy creamy sauce" that are then double breaded with a spicy batter and deep fried for what looks like a really thick shell of crunchiness.

The spicy vegetarian burger is accompanied simply with lettuce and a sauce that appears to be Thousand Island.

Paneer is a non-melting cheese popular in South Asian cuisine.

Zinger is a style of KFC chicken that's offered in quite a few countries but not here in the States. It's basically a spicy version of Extra Crispy.

McDonald's India serves a similar sandwich that they call the  "McSpicy Paneer" as well as a Paneer Wrap.
