Paneer Pakora

A hearty Ramadan Mubarak to all readers! Here’s a fab recipe I tried at Iftaar last night that was a hit. I had some paneer in the freezer that I wanted to make use of for Iftar. Remember I love Paneer lots! Although there are many recipes on the internet that  make use of Paneer cubes as a whole and make pakoras and bhajiyas etc. But I was looking for a recipe to really disintegrate paneer into a pakora or fritter..!  And so this recipe is a mix of a few I browsed in span of 10 mins.

I hope you try it and it turns out yum!
