~1 lb Paneer Fries Medium
Total: Active:
PREVIOUS: Sweet Potato Fries NEXT: Paneer Chilly

Ingredients (3)

  • Fresh/Cryovac Paneer - 1 lb block (Don't use frozen)
  • Oil for deep frying (canola is fine)
  • Salt, Indian Chili powder (or Cayenne), Garam Masala

Tried these as an experiment after making an Indian dish..they’re very good (& fattening & addictive??) ;-)


  1. 1Cut the block of paneer into french- fry sized strips ( your choice of thickness)
  2. 2Heat oil in a dutch oven/large pot to 350F (I like to use the new laser, non-contact thermometers).
    Deep fry until golden and slightly browned.
  3. 3Remove with slotted spoon and turn onto paper towels to absorb excess oil.
    Toss with a few pinches of Garam Masala, Chili powder to taste and salt.
    I don’t use any condiments with these, but feel free to experiment
