Melt-in-the-mouth cubes of paneer are enrobed in a tongue-tickling batter and deep-fried to make this Malwani Style Paneer Pakoda.

What makes it different from regular pakodas is the richness of flavour. Not only is the paneer marinated in lemon juice and spices, but the batter is also reinforced with flavourful ingredients like carom seeds and garam masala.

Indeed, this is one rich tea-time snack. Make sure you serve it hot, to enjoy a fresh texture and flavour.
