A lovely pre-dinner snack for Paneer Pakoras – an Indian dish made with paneer cheese dipped into a spicy mixture and deep fried. Its gluten-free too!
1 cup chickpea flour
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2/3 cup warm water
225 grams paneer, cut into 1/4? sticks
Oil for frying
Heat the frying oil in a deep pot until it reaches 375F/190C
In a medium bowl whisk together the chickpea flour, garam masala, and salt.
Add the water and oil and whisk until smooth. It should be the consistency of pancake batter. Add more water if needed.
Dip the paneer into the batter with tongs, letting any excess drip off. Fry the paneer until golden brown, about 2 – 3 minutes. Drain on a paper towel.
Serve immediately with tamarind sauce or sauce of your choice.
