Ingredients

  • 200 Gm Paneer Fresh or thawed if frozen ones
  • ¼ cup All purpose flour maida
  • 2 tablespoon Corn flour
  • 1 tablespoon Plain yogurt curd
  • 1 Pinch Cooking soda
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garam masala powder optional
  • ½ teaspoon Black pepper powder optional
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon juice
  • 2 sprigs Curry leaves
  • ½ teaspoon Chaat masala – ½ tsp
  • Salt – as needed
  • Oil - to deep fry

Instructions

  • First thaw the paneer if frozen.
  • Cut into fingers, soak the paneer strips in hot water for 20 mins.
  • Drain water completely and take it in a wide bowl or plate.
  • Marinate the paneer cubes with half the ginger garlic paste, ½ teaspoon red chilli powder, ¼ teaspoon garam masala powder, black pepper powder, lemon juice and little salt for 10 mins.
  • Prepare the batter using all purpose flour, corn flour, remaining red chilli powder, garam masala powder, required salt, curd and required ice cold water.
  • The batter should be thick enough to coat the paneer cubes as a thin layer, not a thick coating. so prepare accordingly.
  • Toss the paneer cubes in a tablespoon of corn flour or all purpose flour. This helps even coating keeping it intact to the paneer.
  • Heat oil and add the paneer cubes to the batter.
  • Coat it from all sides and using a fork drop in hot oil. You can use your hands too.
  • Let it get cooked until golden and turn the paneer cubes. Cook until golden and crisp.
  • Add few curry leaves to the oil. Drain in paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with chaat masala. Paneer 65 is ready to serve.

Notes

  • While frying in oil, do not try to separate the paneer even if it gets stuck to each other. Later after getting cooked, you can easily separate.
  • Make sure to add all the spices and balance it, otherwise will be bland.
  • I made more than mentioned measurements.
