You can eat it as a starter or with noodles, fried rice or even with pulao. So friends, try this out and share your comments!

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making perfect Paneer Manchurian recipe. Firstly, make sure that batter is not too thick or not too thin. Then add paneer cubes in the batter and mix well. For perfect Manchurian, the batter should coat the paneer cubes evenly. You can also add 1 tsp chilli powder to the batter. If you add chilli powder then reduce the quantity of pepper powder.

Secondly, heat the oil over medium heat and fry until they turn golden brown. Then, in this recipe, I did not use Ajinomoto, but if you want you can add a pinch of Ajinomoto to get a restaurant-style Paneer Manchurian. While Ajinomoto may increase the taste, but it is considered as unhealthy. Furthermore, I didn’t use any food color in this recipe. But if you like you can add a few drops of good quality food color to the batter  or add Kashmiri chilli powder to get a bright color.

Once the Manchurian is prepared, it has to be served immediately, as it may turn soggy if kept for a while.
