Paneer Pakoda (Cottage Cheese Fritters) calls for a perfect evening snack recipe, especially during rainy days around. Pakodas are bite sized fritters, typically made from onion, paneer or any other vegetables that are dunked in a spicy gram flour batter and deep fried till they turn golden and crisp. For someone who is a foodie but also health conscious at the same time, here is my version of non-fried paneer pakodas that are high in protein and low in fat too.
In this recipe, I have sprinkled some spice powders over paneer cubes as paneer doesn’t have its own taste. Then I have dipped them in gram flour batter and fried them on a pan with just a teaspoon of oil. With this method, the pakodas turn out to be extremely healthy without any major change in the taste compared to the deep-fried version. These Paneer Pakodas can be paired with a simple ketchup or coriander-mint chutney.
