Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 4


  • 250 grams Paneer fresh
  • ½ cup chickpea flour/ besan/ kadalai mavu
  • 2 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • Green chutney as needed
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 pinch cooking soda
  • tsp asafoetida
  • 2 tsp ghee
  • Oil to deep fry
  • Salt as needed


  • In a mixing bowl, take besan, rice flour, corn flour, chilli powder, pepper powder, turmeric, cooking soda, asafoetida and salt.
  • Mix well. Add required water and make batter, not too thick, not too thin. It should coat well the paneer if you dip it.
  • Add ghee and mix lastly.
  • Slice paneer block as thin as possible. Cut into square slabs. Keep it immersed in hot water until use.
  • Spread green chutney over a paneer slice and place the other on top of it so that you make a sandwich with green chutney in middle.
  • Dip it in besan batter we prepared and deep fry in hot oil.
  • Flip and cook over medium flame until golden and crisp.
  • Drain over paper towel. Repeat to finish.



  • You can also slit a thick slice of paneer in the middle to add green chutney inside it. But I chose this way.
  • If using frozen paneer, thaw first, keep immersed in hot water.
