Recipe
1
Cut 250 grams of paneer into rectangular or square pieces of medium thickness.
2
In a mixing bowl, add 1 cup of gram flour (besan), 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon ajwain (carom seeds), a pinch of asafoetida (hing), and salt to taste. Mix well.
3
Gradually add water to the dry mixture and whisk until you get a smooth, thick batter without any lumps.
4
Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat.
5
Dip each paneer piece into the batter, ensuring it is evenly coated on all sides.
6
Carefully slide the coated paneer pieces into the hot oil and deep-fry until they turn golden brown and crispy.
7
Remove the paneer pakodas from the oil using a slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel to absorb excess oil.
8
Serve hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
