Bread - Paneer Pakoda

I'm back after a long break with a simple snack item: Bread - Paneer Pakoda. Its a good item for a rainy day or when you have unexpected company.

Here's how I made it:

4 slices bread - I used whole wheat bread and kept the crust on. Any variety will do and you can cut off the crust if you prefer.

Some green cilantro chutney - I used store bought this time


Paneer - I used store bought and cut it into thin slices

Chaat masala

Slather the green chutney on 2 slices and the ketchup on the other 2 slices of bread. Lay the paneer slice on a chutney-slathered bread, sprinkle with some chaat masala, cover with a ketchup-slathered slice to form a sandwich.

For the batter -

1 cup gram flour (besan)

1/4 cup rice flour

1 tsp salt or to taste

1/4 tsp cumin seeds

Generous pinch of asafotida

Handful of chopped cilantro

Red chilli pwd to taste

Mix all of the above. Add 1.5 - 2 cups water, a little at a time, and stir well to get a smooth batter. Dip the bread - paneer sandwich in the batter and deep fry in moderately hot oil till golden brown on both sides, about 2-3 mins.

My daughter loves these pakodas and so do her little friends.

These bread - paneer pakodas are off to Priya's Sunday Snack event.
