Paneer Bhajji / Paneer Fritters | Indian Appetizers

Paneer is in my "all-time favorite" list. I have tried variety of curries and rice using Paneer, but haven't tried any deep fried dishes with it. This time I planned to make some deep fried fritters with paneer, for a little weekend evening munchies. 


Ingredients:
Paneer - 7 oz - 200g
Besan flour/Chana dhal flour/Garbanzo beans flour - 1 cup
Rice flour - 1/3 cup
Red chilli powder - 3/4 tsp or to taste
Asafoetida - Hing - 1/2 tsp
Baking soda - a pinch (optional)
Chaat masala - 1/4 tsp (optional)
Salt - to taste
Oil - to deep fry
Method:
Cut the paneer to cubes, lengthwise or any desired shape. Mix besan flour, rice flour, red chilli powder, asafoetida, baking soda and salt with water to make a batter of dipping consistency. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Take a paneer piece and dip in the batter and carefully drop in the hot oil. Drop about 5 or 6 pieces at a time and do not crowd the pan. Flip it over and fry until it turns to a golden brown. Remove from oil and drain in tissue paper. Serve hot with chutney or ketchup or just dusted with chaat masala.
