Paneer Ke Pakode



Paneer Pakoda is a very easy breezy starter . Whenever you have little time and want something delicious you can count on this dish. I usually make the paneer for this pakodas at home by adding lemon juice to boiling milk and curdling it. Such home made cottage cheese is more smooth and crumbly. But if you want you can make these pakodas with store bought paneer also.

Batter for frying :


1/2 cup.................besan ( chick pea flour )
1/2 tsp...................turmeric powder
1/4 tsp...................chilly powder
1/4 tsp..................ajwain powder
salt
oil for deep frying



Method :


Mix all ingredients given in pakoda well .

Roll them into 1 inch elongated shapes. ( makes about 12 to 14 ).

Now in a vessel mix all the things for batter except oil.

Make a thick batter like that of idli batter consistency.

Dip the elongated pakodas in this batter and deep fry in hot oil til golden in colour.

Serve hot with chutney of ketchup.
