Appetizer #6 : Paneer pakora

Going Indian today 🙂 Paneer is Indian cottage cheese. It looks like tofu but has much firmer texture. If you are in US / UK you’ll get this is any international supermarket or Indian grocery store. If you are in HK you’ll also get it at Welcome supermarket. This is my favorite Indian appetizer – Spicy and cheesy!


You’ll need :

  • Paneer : 1 packet cubed (~250 gm)
  • Besan (ground channa dal powder) or Corn Flour – ½ cup
  • G.Chilli – 1
  • Chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Coriander – 3-4 sprigs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil for frying

Method :

  1. Cube the paneer and set aside. Heat oil for frying in a wok.
  2. Mix rest of the dry ingredients together. Add water tbsp by tbsp until you get a thick paste.
  3. Dip the paneer (6-8 pieces) in the paste and carefully drop them one by one iin the oil wok and fry until golden brown. Its ready! Serve with chutney/chilli sauce.

Bon Appetite . Happy Parenting!
