BM # 12 Day 3
There is nothing new about Paneer Pakoras ,the same paneer ,the same besan…aint it?...Recently my hubby has become allergic to chana daal and we all are so fond of pakoras.We might eat them once in a while ,but you start to crave for the things which are banned.Naturally I stopped making anything with chana daal and that includes besan!!While planning recipes for BM I wondered about the twist to pakoras…something different and something which my hubby could eat.Next morning I sent the yellow moong daal for grinding.It was a lovely fine powder,I quickly made a batter and fried a test pakora.Unbelievable!! I was waiting for evening to surprise everyone with these pakoras.Check out for yourself….
200........gms paneer cut into thick rectangles
Salt to taste
Grind coarsely to make a thick chutney.
1cup........ moong daal flour
¼ tsp........ red chilly pwd
Mix all ingredients and using water make a batter for pakoras .
How to go about
Slice the rectangular pieces into two..or you could slit them.
Apply salt and leave them for about 5 minutes.
Fill the green chutney.
Dip into batter and deep fry till golden.
Cut into pieces.
Serve with any spicy sauce .
I served it with maggi oriental sauce!!
Do I need to tell you the reaction?..well my M.I.L. was more than pleased .Her son could eat Pakoras!!..and hubby gave me a nice long list to make from this moong daal flour!!
