Navratri Paneer Pakora / Buckwheat & Cottage Cheese Fritters

Good evening readers!! Today I am going to share the recipe for "Phalahari Panner Pakora" meant for specifically consuming during fasts. Generally we use gram-flour batter for coating paneer ( or cottage cheese) pieces before deep frying, but since we cannot consume gram-flour during navratre fasts we are replacing it with "Kuttu" or Buckwheat flour. You can also replace Kuttu with Singhara flour.


  • Kuttu(or Buckwheat) flour - 1 cup
  • Chopped Green chillies- 2
  • Rock Salt (Sendha Namak) - To Taste
  • Red Chilli powder- 1 tsp
  • Paneer- 200 grams
  • Water - 3/4 cup ( For preparing the batter)
  • Oil-For deep frying

Steps To Prepare:

Take Kuttu flour in a bowl. Add salt, red chilli powder and chopped green chillies to it. Gradually, add water to it to form a smooth batter.

Cut the paneer into rectangular cubes. Heat oil in a pan for frying.

Once the oil is heated, dip paneer in batter and gently leave it in oil with the help of a spoon or by hands. Let it fry on medium heat till it is golden brown from outside.

 Enjoy these yummy crunchy pakoras with Coriander-Mint chutney!! :)
