Paneer is a versatile ingredient and does well in both savory and sweet avatars. There are numerous Indian snacks recipes that can be prepared using paneer and one such classic appetizing tea time snack or a rainy day treat is Paneer Pakora. Just a handful of ingredients go into its making with minimal work. Soft, melt in the mouth cottage cheese is dipped in spiced chick pea batter and deep fried to a golden brown shade. Its a good idea to blanch paneer pieces for a few minutes so that they soften and then prepare paneer pakora.
A popular variation of paneer pakora is to sandwich two pieces of paneer with green chutney before dipping them in the pakora batter.
