7. heat 5 tbsp oil in a pan. the oil should be medium hot. you can fry the paneer on a low to medium flame, regulating the flame while frying. coat the paneer cubes with the batter and add them to the hot oil. keep some space between the paneer cubes so that they don’t stick. i have shallow fried the paneer cubes but you can even deep fry. for a healthier version, pan fry with 2 or 3 tbsp oil. this will give less crisp paneer cubes.

  1. Very nice recipe Ms. Dassana. Can you please tell whether i may add rava or oats powder (1 or 2tbsp) to the batter for making it more crispy.
    Thanks a lot.

    • you can add either of them.

  2. It was too greasy for my taste. I think I’ll stick to the original recipe of using of using maida and deep frying, making sure to indulge in it only occasionally..

    • zaynab, the recipe is not oily or greasy. the oil has to be hot enough when frying. if the oil is not hot, then the batter absorbs a lot of oil and this makes the paneer cubes greasy. whether you use maida or any flour, if the frying is done at low heat, then the food item does become greasy.

  3. looks very yummy. going to try this today 🙂 thank you for the recipe 🙂

    • Welcome Pinks

  4. made it with only all purpose flour. turned out real tasty. Thanks

    • nice to know petal and thanks for letting me know.

  5. can I just use maida instead of rice + besan+ corn flour etc?

    • you can use maida.

  6. Clear instructions helped to make the dish easy. Tasty, I got compliments. I would like recipes of vegetables like gawar /bhindi without onion and garlic. Also in gravy but without tomatoes.

  17. Looks like your paneer recipes just get better every time I try a new one. Just when I thought that Paneer Manchurian is the best on your blog, this paneer 65 took over the race. Seems like you have mastered the taste and texture bit of the culinary world and the evidence of it comes out on every dish that we as beginners try from your blog. It’s amusing how you make it so super simple for us to turn our dishes as good as that made in restaurants. Thanks a ton, as always ! ! !

    • thanks chinmayee. curd is not required in this recipe. but if you want then you can experiment.

  20. I have never used besan in 65 recipe….even rice flour is alien to this dish when I make….I use only maida and cornflour….this is a healthier version…. Too good….gonna try it soon… Great recipe as usual 🙂

    • thanks priya. in any 65 recipe always maida and corn starch is added. i wanted to make a better version and hence this recipe. but i will add the restaurant version too with maida and corn starch 😉

    marina

    • welcome bhupesh. good to know this. thanks for sharing positive feedback on website.

  24. hi Dassana, I don’t have ready made pastes. Could you please tell me how many green chillies and garlic and ginger (in inches) to grind to get this quantity of paste? I’m new to cooking so please guide me! 🙂

    • hi sneha, no worries. 1/2 to 3/4 inch ginger will give 1 tsp ginger paste, 4 to 5 small to medium garlic cloves will give 1 tsp garlic paste and 2 small green chilies, will give you 1 green chili paste. just crush them in a mortal-pestle to get the paste.

      • Amit Thank you for my favourite dish recipe. I made. it was super.

        • welcome govindd. glad to know this.

      • Thank you. This is very useful even for any other recipes. 🙂

        • welcome sneha

  25. This is one of the best recipe. I really love your blog. Is there any substitute for rice flour?

    • thanks srishti. you can use all purpose flour or maida.

  26. Hi,
    awesome blog..great going. The recipes never let you down especially when something new is to be tried out.
    i have this doubt….
    what’s the outcome of a recipe when GINGER-GARLIC paste is used and when ginger paste and garlic paste are separately used…?

    Cheers
    sindhu

    • thanks sindhu for sharing positive review on recipes. it does not make a difference. its convenient to crush ginger garlic together in one go.
