Juicy paneer and soft potatoes will make these pakodas children's favourite. The inner core iscomposed of successive layers of paneer melts smoothly on the tongue. Packing mint chutney between the paneer slices eliminates their blandness and also helps salt seep inside effectively. Potato covering gives our preparation a firm shape and helps paneer retain its softness. Inserting a toothpick through the layers assists the chef in holding the pieces together while dipping them in besan batter. Sprinkling chaat masala makes them tangy.
Team up the pakodas with sweet-and-sour tamarind chutney and enjoy them hot with a simmering cup of ginger tea.

- Take a potato roundel and place one paneer pair (the ones which had been placed in refrigerator after applying mint chutney).
- Place another potato roundel over the paneer pair.
- Join all the four layers by inserting a tooth pick through them.
