Chili Garlic Paneer Pakora (cottage Cheese Fritters With Chili And Garlic Sauce)

Since I started blogging my recipes, I feel, I have develop a habit of cooking and sharing. Earlier I used to get Samosas or Kachoris and sweets from outside whenever some guests used to come over to our place. Now a days, I rush to my kitchen to cook something for them. My Family and guests appreciate it and I feel happy. Yesterday, I tried these new Chili garlic Paneer Pakoras. I had some Paneer in my refrigerator since Last week. Fearing that it may get spoiled, I thought of making some pakoras. My favourite has been ‘Hara paneer pakora’, But I had no Coriander so I substituted the coriander chutney with the chili garlic Chutney( My second favouite chutney) . To balance the taste I added some Tomato sauce. The result was a new recipe Chili garlic paneer pakora. Here goes the recipe for all of you.

To make the batter combine besan, roasted cumin and red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt in a bowl. Add Sufficient water and make a semi thick batter.
Heat oil in a pan over low heat. Dip each paneer Sandwich in besan batter and coat it evenly. Now slowly put in hot oil. You can fry two to three pieces at a time. Fry till all the sides are done and it gets a nice light brown colour. Remember to keep the flame low as besan is heat sensitive.
