Papadi Paneer Pakoda

Papadi Paneer Pakoda

Ingredients for Batter

1 cup gram flour/chickpeas flour/besan

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

Just a pinch of red chili powder- optional

Chopped Coriander

Green Chilies- finely chopped

Amchoor Powder/Dry Mango Powder- 1tsp

A pinch of Garam masala

Salt to taste

Other Ingredients-

Paneer cut into 1 inch cubes/Cottage Cheese

Papads (Any of your choice or one that’s readily available) Break it into small ~1/2 inch pieces

Vegetable/Sunflower Oil for deep-frying

Chaat Masala


Mix all ingredients of batter to form a dip, thick enough to thickly coat back of a spoon. This batter should be of medium consistency. Keep it aside.

Keep the Papad pieces readily spread in a plate.

Heat oil in a pan for deep frying

Dip each of the paneer cube in the gram flour batter and gradually roll it in the papad pieces such that papad pieces stick to the batter covering.  Let it into the oil and deep fry until golden brown in color. Take it out once done and sprinkle some chaat masala for that zesty flavor .

Place it on a tissue paper- and now serve hot with Coriander Chutney or Ketchup.  A Crunch Munch Sunday!
