We begin with the second week of BM 81 . For this week I have chosen to post recipes under the theme Anniversary Recipes. Whenever we have a party and we decide on snacks it is always the fried snacks which are on top of the list , pakoras being one of them . Paneer Pakoras make a rich snack and are perfect for any party . The paneer here has been stuffed with a spice powder and then batter fried to a nice crisp golden .These pakoras were my dad’s favourite and he would ask mom to make them whenever we would have guests . I definitely get nostalgic while making these.

These pakoras can be enjoyed by the kids too since  the spice level can be adjusted according to personal preference , but one must remember that the cheese does not have any spice so a little spice is always needed , else they taste very bland . I made these paneer pakoras for my Protein Rich theme where I posted these under Sindhi Thali .

  1. Paneer pakoras bring lot of memory for me. I grew up in Kanpur and one of my dad’s colleague’s wife used to make this when we visit them. I used to just finish the while plate without sharing with anyone. I remember that she added a bit of ajwain to the batter ad i liked the flavor of it. After seeding yours, I am tempted to eat them.
