Paneer Pakora

Today I prepared “Paneer Pakora” or you can say cheese fritters too. As per Blogging Marathon for second week I choose cooking from Indian restaurant, under this theme we have to choose one restaurant and cook from restaurant’s menu card. For this I selectAkbar’s Indian Restaurantin starter course. 
For the 1st day I post Paneer Pakora, because it’s mine favourite too. You can serve this pakora accompaniment with tomato sauce or green chili dip with hot tea.

Preparation time: 5-7 Minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
1 cup Bengal Gram flour/ Besan
Salt to taste
Red chili to taste
1 tsp. Carom seeds
1/4 Tsp. Baking soda
Chaat masala to taste
Vegetable oil for deep fry

Cut the paneer into big cube form. Now divide the cube into half and sprinkle little salt, red chili and chat masala between both portion as sandwich.
Now sieve the gram flour and combine flour, salt, red chili, baking soda, carom seeds and water for thick and smooth consistency batter for pakora.
Now heat the oil in wok on high flame, when oil is hot enough. Add the paneer into flour batter and coat well. Place paneer one by one in oil and cook till to golden and crisp on medium flame.
Serve hot paneer fritters or pakora with chutney and sprinkle little chaat masala on the top of pakoras.
