Paneer/Cottage Cheese is the most popular and loveable dairy product in the Indian Subcontinent. This Indian cheese is so versatile that numerous dishes are prepared with this, from amazing curries to snacks and appetizers. This wonderful cheese makes yummy pakode which is favourite of all age groups especially the kids.

PANEER PAKORA or paneer fritter is the most loved evening snack which is relished with our chai. In this version of mine, Paneer or cottage cheese pieces are marinated first with ginger paste, lemon juice and chilly powder and then dipped into besan/gram flour batter to deep fry in the oil. These pakode go well with our beloved GREEN CHUTNEY
