Moong Dal Paneer Pakoda

Moong Dal Paneer Pakoda

Moong Dal Paneer Pakodas (lentil fritters) are a fun addition to a traditional dish that I have been enjoying since my childhood on Makar Sankranti, the kite festival.  I’ve added spiced paneer to the traditional moong dal fritters for a delicious crispy pakoda that is moist and soft from inside.

Pair the crisped-to-perfection fritters with freshly made cilantro-mint and chili-garlic chutneys for a festive, texture-filled way to beat the winter weather!

Instructions
  1. Rinse the dals and soak them for at least 2-3 hours or overnight in water. Then, drain the water, rinse the dals and then finely grind it with very little water.

  2. Wash the grated potato for 2-3 times in cold water to remove excess starch. Squeeze it using your hands or a cheesecloth to remove all the water.

  3. Transfer the potatoes and lentil paste into a mixing bowl. Add in the all the remaining ingredients (including the 2 tsp hot oil) and mix until combined.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix the paneer pieces with chaat masala and red chili powder. Leave it aside for 5-10 minutes.

  5. Now, heat oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Once ready, coat the paneer cubes in the mixture and fry on medium heat for 7-8 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

  6. Serve with mint-cilantro and chili-garlic chutneys. Enjoy!
