Paneer Pakora Recipe | Easy Paneer Snack Recipe - Paneer Pakora

Paneer Pakora Recipe
Kids are in vacation and that is the reason for my absence here. The whole day I am busy with them, we play, cook, read, draw, play board/card games, go out for a walk and ride bike. So one or the other things kept me busy. I will try my best to be active here. Now coming to today's recipe, Paneer Pakora. Few weeks back I made this Paneer Pakora for tea time snack.
These pakoras are similar to south Indian bajis in which the paneer pieces are dipped in spicy besan batter and deep fried. As I am not much fond of bhajis, i made this paneer pakoras for kids and they loved it.  These paneer pakoras are gluten free and are very easy to make at home.
