Start heating your oil to 375F – you’ll want at least 2-3″ of oil in your pot or deep fryer.
In a large bowl, combine flours, spices, salt, baking powder, and cilantro. Add water, stir well to form a thick batter. All batter to sit for 5 minutes or so, to soften the bean flour.
Slice your paneer into long fingers about 1″ x 1″, by however long your bricks are. Toss cheese sticks with additional garbanzo flour, then dredge in the batter.
Carefully transfer a few battered sticks of paneer to the preheated oil. Fry for a few minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Use a slotted metal spoon to transfer fried paneer to paper towels.
Serve hot, with with cilantro-mint chutney.
