Gluten-Free Paneer Pakora
Remember when I went on my Pakora making binge, promised recipes, and then procrastinated on it for a few months?
And then, when I posted one more recipe, I procrastinated for another few months?
Yeah... sorry about that! Better late than never, right?
Here's my recipe for gluten free paneer pakora. Oh, yum.
These are one of those food items that SHOULD in inherently gluten free, in restaurants - but the batter is often cut with wheat flour, and they're always cross contaminated anyway.
Never fear, though! These are very easy to make, and taste quite authentic... and they're especially delicious with my Cilantro-Mint chutney!
Also, if you're interested in gluten-free cooking and baking, you should definitely check out my gluten-free cookbooks: Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten Free Cooking & Baking, and the sequel... Beyond Flour 2. You can order them right here on my website, through Amazon, or through any major bookseller.
