Paneer pakora is a popular North Indian deep-fried snack, with a crispy outer layer of spicy gram flour batter and a soft-moist paneer slice inside. 

There are many other versions of the same using bread slices, potato filling, chutneys etc. All are deep-fried. 

Here, I‘ve created the basic version of it with No Oil or a very little oil to grease the waffle maker plate. These waffles are a must try. So very easy and interesting to kids. These make an excellent breakfast or evening snack or lunch box recipe.


  • 1 cup Gram Flour
  • 4 Paneer Slices (about 2 mm. of thickness)
  • 1/4 tsp. Carom Seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. Turmeric Powder 
  • 1/4 tsp. Red Chili Powder 
  • A pinch of Asafetida 
  • 1 medium Green Chili (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh Coriander Leaves (finely chopped)
  • Salt (as per our preference)
  • About 1/2 cup of water (to prepare a batter of pouring consistency)
  • 1 to 2 tsps. Olive Oil to grease the waffle or waffle maker plate (optional)

Notes: My family loved it like anything. Decent size, delicious, and satisfying with a tiny amount of oil. Served hot with Maggi Tomato Ketchup and Fresh Coriander-Mint Chutney.
