Paneer Sandwich Pakodas

Everyone must be wondering, why I am posting only pakodas..ya winter and craving will be more for hot spicy pakodas with spicy green chutney..today I am posting one of my favourite pakoda, paneer sandwich pakoda.
Now we all like paneer pakodas and bread pakodas, again also we like paneer sandwich also, So its all in one..paneer, bread, sandwich and pakoda.
Batter is the same as all pakoda batter, that is chickpea flour/besan batter, but the paneer is sandwiched between two bread slices and dipped in batter and deep fried.
Yes...while sandwiching you can add your choice of green and sweet chutneys and sandwich, will taste awesome..but I just plainly sandwiched with bread and paneer, before serving sprinkled chat masala and served with ketchup and green chutney..
It is a good winter evening snack and also a party starter..it is very filling too..serve it with fresh salad to make it a bit healthier...

Bread Slices White/Brown - 8
Paneer Slices - 4
Besan/Chickpea Flour - 1 cup,
Rice Flour - 1/4 cup,
Red Chilly Powder - 2 teaspoons,
Bi Carbonate of Soda - a fat pinch,
Ajwain/Carom seeds/ - 1 teaspoon,
Oil - 2 teaspoons(do not heat),
Sufficient Oil for frying,
Chat Masala to Sprinkle(optional).
Choice of chutneys or sauces to serve with.

In a wide bowl, mix chickpea flour, salt, red chilly powder, soda, carom seeds and rice flour.
Add water to the ingredients mixture, little by little to make it a medium consistency smooth batter without lumps.
Batter should not be either too thick or runny.
Add 2 teaspoons of raw oil(not heated) to the batter and mix well.
Meanwhile heat sufficient oil in a frying pan.
Place a paneer slice in between two slices of bread and cut diagonally, to make equal triangle.
Repeat the same with rest of the bread and paneer slices.
Oil should be medium hot.
Dip the sandwiched bread and paneer  slices in the batter, coat the batter well.
Drop this in medium hot oil carefully.
Fry the sandwiched paneer bread slices, until nicely golden brown on both sides.
Sprinkle chat masala on the pakodas when it is warm.
Serve warm with choice of chutneys and sauce.
