Stuffed Paneer chop/Pakora

Stuffed Paneer chop/pakora is very famous in eastern India...It is easy to make and yummy in taste, is the perfect explanation for this snacks. It is appetizing to even look at. One of my most favourites after aloo chop is paneer chop or paneer pakora, but not the usual one,its slight different, in this green chutney is used as a stuffing which increases the flavour as well as the taste a lott..and the stuffed paneer has 2 coatings- 1st one is of besan and the 2nd one is of maida .


Now its enough of my words...lets start with the recipe:-

Ingredients

Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) – 1 lbs
Besan (Bengal gram flour) – 2 cups
Maida(All purpose flour ) - 2 cups
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1tsp
Baking soda – 1 pinch
Green chutney – 1 cup
1 capsicum- chopped
1 Tomato-chopped
Chaat masala – 1 tbsp
Water – 1-2 cup approx. (for making the pakora batter)
oil to fry
Salt as per taste



Method:

Cut the paneer in 1*1 inch square thin slices. Keep aside.
Prepare pakora batter by adding besan, salt, garam masala, red chili powder, turmeric and a pinch of baking soda in one bowl. Add water and mix well into a thick batter.
Take a 2nd bowl and do the same to make batter of maida..
On the paneer slices, apply a layer of green chutney, some capsicum and tomatoes and cover it with another paneer slice. It will look like a sandwich.
Heat oil for frying the pakoras . Check the temperature, if it is medium hot.
Gently cover these sandwiches in the pakora batter of besan and fry it in the oil.
Fry till turns sightly brown and then drain on the kitchen towel.
Now dip these in to the batter made from maida and fry again.



Drain them  when looks crispy or changes its colour to slight brown....
Sprinkle some chaat masala to the pakoras when they are still hot.
Serve hot with tomato sauce or any sauce/chutney of ur choice...
