Paneer Fritters

A finger food that can be served as a starter or a tea-time snacks.
Also a nice accompaniment to mocktail/cocktail.
Nowadays, we call them fritters, as a child we used to call them paneer pakoda. This batter of cornflour gives a crisp texture to the fritters and they remain crisp even after an hour or two of deep frying.

Ingredients :

Maida : 2-3 tbsp
Cornflour - 2 tbsp
Fresh Coriander (finely chopped) - 1 tsp
Dry Oregano - 1 tsp
Chili Flakes - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Bell Peppers (red, yellow, green) (finely chopped) - 1 tbsp
Paneer (cut into long thick slices) - 10-12

Procedure :
  1. Mix everything except paneer slices.
  2. Prepare a thick batter using little water.
  3. Dip each paneer slice into the batter and deep fry them in hot oil till light golden.
  4. Drain on absorbent paper.
  5. Garnish with finely chopped bell peppers.
  6. Serve hot with tomato sauce or pudina chutney.
Tip : In place of fresh coriander, fresh parsley/dried parsley can be used.
