Cheese Pakoda is a delicious and cheesy variation of our typical pakodas. The outer layer will be crispy in contrast to the melted cheesy inside.


They are straightforward and quick to make. Your taste buds are definitely going to have a party eating this.

There can be many ways to make this cheese pakoda. With some alterations here and there, you can manage to make a different version of this snack every time.

You can use any solid cheese. Mozzarella cheese is the next best substitute for the snack. Just keep in mind to adjust the spices with the taste of the cheese you are using.

You can also add some veggies like carrots or capsicum. Just chop it as small as you can.

Also, make sure the batter for coating must be thick. Or else, the cheese can melt and sputter in the oil while frying.

This snack will be best with hot tea or cheese dip, ketchup (Best Tomato Ketchup Brands in India), chilli sauce, or mint-coriander chutney. It is great to make for quick kids’ snacks or their tiffin box.

It will taste best and will be most enjoyable when eaten hot. Otherwise, the cheese will be solidified if it gets cold.
