Fried Paneer – Delicious Paneer Fry Recipe

Paneer Fry Recipe

Dear Folks,

Been long time, huh???? We are back with another simple cum delicious recipe of PANEER FRYIndian snacks/fritters made by deep frying Cottage cheese (paneer) marinated in Indian spices.

This is the easiest fried recipe I have ever tried. I was just chit-chatting with my friend in whatsapp and she had just sent me three pictures describing the whole recipe. I was utterly amazed as the ingredients included only the basic spices that we have at home. I then started asking her about including this & that in the ingredients for better taste.  She simply said “Nope, Marinate, Fry & Serve”. How does that sound for you? Yes, it is that easy!!! After seeing those photos, I could n’t resist trying Paneer Fry on the very same day. Thank you Sudha for this wonderful recipe. A crispy hot snack for a cold evening 🙂
