Cheese Pakoda/Pakora (Fritters)

Cheese_Pakoda_Pakora_Fritters_1 Cheese Pakoda/Pakora (Fritters) are good starters and can be prepared easily. The melted cheese inside this pakoda  tastes divine when you eat it hot. I prepare this with chickpea flour (also known as gram flour/basen in Hindi/kadalai mavu in Tamil) added with some spices.

Ingredients

  • Cheese cubes – 5 no
  • Gram flour – 1 cup
  • Corn flour – 1 table spoon
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tea spoon
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ tea spoon
  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 tea spoon
  • Cooking soda – pinch
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Oil – for frying pakoda

I used Britannia classic processed cheese cubes for this pakoda/pakora.

Tips

  • Take out cheese cubes from the refrigerator after preparing the batter and when you are ready to fry. Otherwise in hot climate, cheese cubes may become too soft to cut and fry.
  • Avoid over-frying.
