Recipe- Taste Of Delicousness Crispy Paneer Fingers
By: Kratika Wed, 23 Nov 2022 11:45 AM
A bit of a switch up on the usual Indian pakora made with a gram flour batter. This recipe uses panko breadcrumbs, spices and a little egg wash to coat the paneer and then fried until golden and crispy. These turn out to be super crunchy on the outside, yet soft and spicy inside. I think these are lovely as a little starter or as a fun little finger food snack.
Dunk into a delicious mint chutney or my tangy tomato chutney for a taste of delicousness.
500g block of paneer
100g plain flour
