Paneer 65

Paneer 65 is a delicious snack or starter.It is an all time favorite dish among every one of us especially kids. It is basically batter coated fried paneer cubes.Dating back to ancient India,[1][2] paneer remains the most common type of cheese used in traditional South Asian cuisines. The use of paneer is more common in Nepal, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh due to the prominence of milk in their cuisine. It is sometimes wrapped in dough and deep-fried or served with either spinach (palak paneer) or peas (mattar paneer). Here I just coated paneer with batter mixed with spices .

  • Paneer 1 packet(nearly 250 gms)
  • Maida 2 table spoons
  • corn starch 2table spoons
  • Vinegar 1 table spoon
  • soya sauce 1 table spoon
  • ginger garlic paste 1 tspn
  • chilli powder 1 Tspn
  • Pepper powder 1 Tspn
  • Salt to taste
  • Water
  • Oil for deep fry

For garnishing: fried onion and green chilli.


  • Slice paneer into cubes if  you take fresh ones,you can directly use it..Here I have taken frozen swad paneer. I take out the paneer from the freezer one hr before cooking.
  • Take a mixing bowl ,mix all ingredients mentioned above except oil.
  • Add water little by little  mix well,until the batter is thick smooth paste.If it is too thick add little more water
  • Slowly combine paneer cubes in this batter,let it rest for 10 mins.
  • Heat oil in a pan or kadai for deep fry.
  • Deep fry paneer pieces,till they are golden brown.
  • Transfer  the paneer pieces  on a kitchen towel,to absorb excess of oil.
  • Garnish with fried onions and green chilli (one small onion and 2 green chillies fried  in a pan)
  • Serve hot with chilli sauce or tomato ketchup of your choice
