Crispy Paneer Masala Oats

Be it a party, a tea time snack or for you to just munch on, Quick bites can fit into any time during the day. Crispy paneer bites is one among the long lists of quick bites. This takes less than 10 minutes for you to prepare. You might as well store it in a zip-loc pouch and deep freeze it and use when you need them on a busy weekday.

I have used a packet of ready made packet of masala oats for the outer coating. These deep-fried paneer bites can be a quick treat for your guests to relish 🙂 Make sure the paneer is fresh because the old stock only makes the paneer harder after frying them.

Ingredients:

Paneer/Cottage cheese – 200 gms (cut into cubes)

Corn starch – 1 tbsp

Maida/All purpose flour – 1 tbsp

White pepper/Black pepper – 1 tsp

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp

Chat masala – a generous pinch for garnish

Saffola Masala oats – 1 small packet

Oil for deep frying

Salt to taste

Water as required for the batter

Method

  1. In a bowl, add corn starch and maida together and sieve twice.
  2. Add 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste, 1/2 tsp white pepper powder, salt and mix everything with little water to make a smooth batter. Not too thin not too thick. The batter must just coat the paneer cubes.
  3. Put the cubed paneer in the batter and mix well.
  4. In a flat plate, empty the packet of masala oats.
  5. Carefully roll the paneer cubes on them. Oats should coat all the sides of paneer.
  6. Now deep fry them in hot oil and transfer them onto a tissue paper. Immediately sprinkle chaat masala on it and serve hot.

Tips

  • You can make  a choice of oats coating. You can also try different flavours of oats to coat the paneer and then fry them
  • You can store these in a zip loc pouch and freeze them for 10 days + after step 5 and use whenever you feel like. Do not keep it for too long. It might loose all the freshness
