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!
Cuisine: Indian | Cooking time: 20 mins | Serving: 4 people
Paneer – 200g (grated)
Gram flour – 5 tbsp
Rice flour – 2 tbsp
Ginger – 1 tsp (grated)
Green chillies – 2 (chopped)
Onions – 2 tbsp (chopped)
Curry leaves – 4-5 (chopped)
Salt – 1 tsp
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)
Water – as required
Oil – to deep fry
Grate the paneer and mix all the dry ingredients.
Mix well and add about half a cup of water to make a thick paste. The consistency should be rough paste, the batter should NOT drop when you pour with a spoon. Sprinkle more water if required. Keep aside for 10 mins. You can heat oil to until then.
With the help of two spoons, scoop the batter in a spoon and with the help of another spoon, slide it carefully into the hot oil. Deep fry until they are golden brown.
Serve warm with your desired sauce!
