What All You Need:
6 Bread Slices
175g Paneer, cut into 3 slices
2 Cups Besan
1 ½ Tbsp Garlic Chutney
1 ½ Tbsp Mint Chutney
Salt to taste
½ Tsp Red Chilli Powder
⅛ Tsp Turmeric
½ Tsp Ajwain
½ Tsp Baking Soda
320 ml Water or as required
Oil, for frying
How to Make:
Spread garlic chutney on 3 bread slices and mint chutney on the remaining 3 bread slices.
Next, place the paneer slices on the bread with the mint chutney and cover with the remaining bread slices with garlic chutney. Keep aside.
Heat oil for deep frying over medium heat.
In the meantime, add besan, salt, chilli powder, turmeric, ajwain, baking soda and water to a bowl. Mix well to form a thick batter. Make sure the batter is neither too thick nor too thin.
Dip the bread sandwiches from step 2 into the batter, coat evenly and lower gently into the hot oil.
Cook for 6-7 minutes per bread pakora from both sides until golden brown and crisp. Remove on a paper towel and repeat with remaining bread and batter.
Once cooked, cut the bread pakora in 4 equal triangles, transfer to a serving platter and serve hot with mint chutney and tomato ketchup.
