Paneer is Indian cottage cheese. It is available in flat, square slabs in the market. Paneer is used very commonly in making snacks, curries, sweets etc.
Making for guests or for family members, paneer pakoda or paneer pakora, is a welcome snack on a wet rainy day or a cold winter day.
Paneer pakoda is also a good accompaniment for lunch or dinner. It is best served hot but is still good even if served at room temperature.
Paneer pakoda can also be packed for lunch along with chapati/phulka or rice.
You may use homemade paneer or store bought paneer.
If using homemade paneer, make sure paneer is hard enough to cut into triangles, squares or fingers the way store bought paneer is. It it is too soft, it will crumble while cutting in shapes. We do not want that to happen.
