Paneer Pakora

Paneer Pakora is a delicious yet simple snack which melts in your mouth. This can be a great choice at any party or on a rainy day. When guest come, serve the piping hot paneer pakora with chutney and I"m sure they'll be licking their fingertips ;) So, lets learn how to prepare this with "Flavors of Sneha's Kitchen".


Paneer Pakoras with Green Chutney
1"square thinly sliced paneer
2 tbsp yogurt
4 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp grated ginger
1 green chilli minced
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
Oil to fry

For Batter:
1/2 cup gram flour
1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
1/8 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp garlic paste
Salt to taste
Water as needed


  • In a bowl, add the yogurt, cornstarch, ginger, green chilli, coriander leaves and salt. Mix well and coat the paneer pieces gently in this mixture. Cover this with plastic foil and let it marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hour.
  • In another bowl, add gram flour, carom seeds, baking soda, garlic paste, salt and little water to make a thick pasty batter.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.
  • Dip the marinated paneer slices in the batter one at a time and drop slowly into the frying pan. Fry the pakoras on medium heat.Turn them occasionally, until both sides are golden brown.
  • Serve it with your choice of dip. I personally like this with coriander green chutney. 

Note: Before frying the pakoras, test the oil temperature by putting one drop of batter in the oil. The batter should form a small ball on the surface of the pan, but not change color. If you want your pakoras to be little more spicy then you can add some red chilli powder in gram flour batter.
