Pakodas On Sticks

Ingredients

  • The Pakoda Vegetables :
  • 500 gms fresh Paneer
  • 1 Capsicum/Green/Red/Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 2 medium/1 big Tomato
  • 1 Onion (optional)
  • For the batter :
  • 1/2 cup besan (gram flour)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Soda Bicarb
  • 1/2 tsp Green Chilli Paste/1 Green Chilli minced finely
  • Oil for Deep frying
  • For Garnish :
  • 2 tsp chaat masala
  • 1 tbsp Coriander Leaves (optional)
  • 12 - 15 Toothpicks/swizzle sticks

Steps

  1. For the batter : Mix all ingredients except soda bicarb and add enough water to whisk into a thick batter (neither very thin nor very thick).Keep aside till making the Pakodas.
  2. Prepare the sticks : Cut the Paneer and vegetables into 1 inch cubes.Its not necessary to make exact pieces but ensure that they are approximately of the same size.I used Paneer,Capsicum and Tomato.
  3. If you use Onion then you can insert it as desired on the sticks. Take a toothpick and start with a Capsicum cube followed by Paneer then by Tomato and then again a piece of Paneer.Prepare all the sticks this way.
  4. Make the Pakodas : Heat Oil in a frying pan.Add the soda bicarb to the batter and whisk well to incorporate.Dip each prepared stick into the batter and deep fry on medium heat till crisp.Take out on absorbent paper.
  5. Serving the snacks : In a plate take the Pakodas on sticks and sprinkle with the chaat Masala and Coriander Leaves.Serve hot with homemade ketchup or chutney and let the guests do the talking!
