Paneer Pakoda

I am back :)) First of all, it feels good to be back. Due to climatic condition first I suffered from viral fever.while recovering, I had severe food infection.. so It takes time to recover. I am back. I missed all of you, and our daily meetings through comments and different entries. Thank you so much Raaji, Priti, Divya, SriPriya, Anjum & vidhya for all of you for all your concern about my health, I am touched. Now, I am feeling much much better.Now come to recepie;

I have been resisting the temptation to make these Pakodas for a long time . Last week rain brings with it cravings for hot,spicy,fried food.

Ingredients

200 -grams paneer

Salt -to taste

1 tsp- red chilli powder

1/2 cup -gram flour

2 tbsp -rice flour

Oil to fry

1/2 cup Water


Method:

1. Cut the paneer into rectangle pieces.

2.Mix gram flour, rice flour, salt and red chilli powder with water to get a thick batter.

3. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade and put the paneer pieces in it. Mix delicately, taking care not to break the pieces.

4.Coat all the pieces with the marinade and keep aside for about 20 mins.

5. Heat oil in a wok/ Kadai. Check the temperature by putting a drop of the batter in it. It should immediately rise and sizzle.

6. Dip the paneer pieces in this batter and fry them in hot oil till golden brown.

7.Serve the paneer pakoda hot with coriander or mint chutney hot.
