How to make this Paneer Pakora snack? First, you need to marinate the paneer in a gram flour batter, which is the pakora batter, containing condiments and spices such as pepper, salt, ajwain, turmeric powder and chilli powder along with a little water for around half an hour. Deep fry the marinated pieces in oil and set them aside to drain the oil from them. After that, saute onions and tomatoes with cumin and mustard seeds and pour this cooked mixture over the paneer to give it that extra tasty kick.
