Paneer Pakoda | paneer pakoda recipe

The other day my mother made this tasty Paneer Mutter Masala. However, some of the paneer was still remaining but were not in proper cube shape and somewhat crushed. I took the remaining paneer and made an evening snack paneer pakoda for us made up of few simple ingredients available in the daily household.

Pakoda also called pikora, pakora, pakodi, fakkura, bhajiya, bhajji, bhaji or ponako, is a fried snack, originating from the Indian subcontinent. It is a popular snack across the Indian subcontinent, where it is served in restaurants and sold by street vendors. It is also often found in Indian restaurants as well as South Asian restaurants in the Western World.

Craving for fritters never stops. However, due to the pandemic we would have to give some break to roadside hawkers or any outside food for that matter. Speaking of fitters I remembered the time when it just started raining here in Mumbai and I cooked Khekda Bhaji/Kanda Bhaji. Total Bliss !

Just like Kanda bhaji, even paneer pakoda is extremely easy to make with proper balance of crunch and tanginess which the chat masala adds at the end.
