Crisp Paneer Fingers

For the second week of Blogging Marathon, I have selected Kids Delight - Evening snacks / Tiffin. Being a blogger and having a kid at home makes you innovative enough to try out and test a new recipe on your Lil one!

When the summer vacations began for Lil Angel,some 2 months back, I was looking out for some form of entertainment to keep her engaged.She readily agreed to join a summer camp for Handwriting, Dance and Hindi. I bet was eager to  make new friends. Anyways, she enjoyed her time in the mornings making new friends at the camp and after lunch she would doze off happily. Then came the difficult part for us - Evening snacks.

Kids hate it when any food stuff is repeatedly offered and Lil Angel is no exception.I did not want to give cream biscuits to her everyday, which by the way,  is her favorite. She loves to lick the cream and will happily pass on the 'cream-less' biscuit to the first person she sees and that, most of the times, will be me.

I often ask her what she wants and depending on the availablity of ingredients prepare something for her. One evening she said she would like to have - apples, murukku, puffed rice and something with paneer.I was going to make bajjis that evening,so I thought I should make her some with paneer. I used a different kind of batter that gave rise to a super crunchy paneer snack.

I used:

All purpose flour - 1/2 cup
Corn flour - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Ajwain seeds / omum - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Panner cubes - 10 numbers
Oil to deep fry

  1. Prepare a batter using All purpose lour,cornflour,bakin powder,salt and ajwain. The batter should be of coating consistency
  2. Heat oil for deep frying.
  3. Dip the paneer cubes in the batter and carefully drop them into the oil.
  4. Deep fry till golden brown.
  5. Drain and serve with tomato sauce.
