Cut the paneer into cubes or long fingers. Prepare a mixture of ginger garlic paste, chilli powder and salt. Marinate the paneer pieces in this mixture for a few minutes. In a separate bowl, combine cornflour, milk, garam masala, pepper, salt and water as required. Mix the ingredients well to ensure no lumps. Dip the paneer pieces into the cornflour slurry, coat them in breadcrumbs and deep-fry until golden. You can serve the fried paneer hot with ketchup, schezwan sauce, hari chutney, or any other dip.
How To Ensure The Paneer Is Perfectly Crisp?
Take care to deep fry the paneer pieces on medium flame. If the oil is not hot enough, the paneer may turn out soggy later. If the oil is too hot, you risk burning the snack. It is also important to not crowd the oil with too many pieces at once. After frying, remember to drain the pieces of excess oil on absorbent paper or using a cooling rack. Don't allow them to sit too long on the paper. Ensure that you properly cover the paneer pieces with the breadcrumbs. You can also use other ingredients to get a crispy coating, as discussed below.
What Other Coatings Can You Use?
Breadcrumbs are one of the most common coating options. But there are alternatives available. Cornflakes, vermicelli and makhana are all good options. They have to be crushed before being used for coating. You can also use tempura batter. There are many ways to give your snacks a crisp golden exterior. Find out more here.
