paneer 65

this recipe is a simple and home style version of paneer 65. not like the restaurant version. i have had paneer 65 in restaurants and i have always got the taste of soy sauce and chili sauce in them. here there is no addition of soy sauce or chili sauce. have kept everything easy and simple for a home cook.

usually in paneer 65, there is no gravy. its a dry dish. but i have had a semi dry version too. there are many variations of paneer 65. this recipe is also a variation.

apart from paneer 65, you can also make aloo 65, gobi 65, mushroom 65 and so on. for a vegan option, substitute paneer with tofu or tempeh. this recipe is also gluten free version of paneer 65.

paneer 65 dish makes for a quick starter or snack recipe. you can serve paneer 65 hot as a starter or with some chapatis, naan or tandoori rotis.

frying paneer for paneer 65

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.

    • thanks lalitha. will try to add such a recipe.
