Paneer chutney pakora

Make pakoras with paneer and a little coriander chutney in the centre to add extra flavour. They're crispy on the outside and super-soft in the middle

  1. Step 1

    Blend the chutney ingredients with 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp sugar. Add 1-2 tbsp water if necessary – the chutney should be a smooth paste.
  2. Step 2

    In a large bowl, mix the flour, chilli powder and turmeric with ½ tsp salt, and slowly pour in 110ml water. Whisk until you have a smooth consistency, like pancake batter.
  3. Step 3

    Fill a deep pan halfway up with oil and heat to 170C, or until a drop of batter sizzles.
  4. Step 4

    Cut the block of paneer in half horizontally, then cut the halves into fingers, roughly 1cm wide. Spread a paneer finger with some of the chutney, then place another finger on top to make a ‘sandwich’. Repeat until all of the paneer is used. Set aside any leftover chutney.
  5. Step 5

    Carefully dip each ‘sandwich’ into the gram flour batter until covered, then fry in the hot oil for 2-4 mins until deep golden. Serve the pakoras with the leftover chutney.
