Paneer Pakoda is a popular Indian snack made by deep-frying paneer (cottage cheese) coated with gram flour batter. Its crunchy outer layer and soft, melty cheese inside make it an irresistible delicacy. It is commonly served with green chutney or ketchup, and is a favorite during monsoon and winter seasons. It's also a popular appetizer in parties and get-togethers.

In a mixing bowl, combine the besan, turmeric powder, red chili powder, ajwain, baking soda, and salt. Add water gradually to make a thick batter.
Cut the paneer into thick slices or cubes.
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.
Dip each piece of paneer in the batter, making sure it is completely coated.
Carefully drop the coated paneer pieces in the hot oil.
Fry the pakodas on medium heat until they turn golden and crispy.
Remove the pakodas from the oil and drain them on a kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
