Bread Pakora

Bread Pakora is tasty and delicious snack. This Pakora is stuffed with mashed potato, then dipped in besan batter and fried .You can even make a plain bread pakora just by dipping in the besan batter without stuffing too. One can experiment with the filling inside the bread by using paneer/cottage cheese, potato, cauliflower, cabbage, peas or combination of your favorite veggies. Here I have used grated potato. Bread Pakora is an easy snack and simple recipe to prepare when sudden guest come over to serve kids in the evening. Bread Pakora goes well with green chutney and tomato sauce.

Bread slices – 4

Besan Batter /Chick pea batter
Besan – ½ cup
Red chilli Powder – ¼ tsp
Amchur powder – 2 pinches
Garam Masala – ¼ tsp
Salt to taste
Water for the batter

Potato – 3
Cumin seeds – ¼ tsp
Coriander powder – ½ tsp
Green chilies – ½ finely chopped
Ginger- Finely chopped (few pieces)
Red chilli Powder – ¼ tsp
Cilantro leaves - 2 tbs
Salt to taste

Boil the potatoes; peel and mash the boiled potatoes. In a hot oil pan add cumin seeds, green chilies, ginger, red chilli powder, coriander powder, smashed potatoes, salt, and cilantro. Fry it for 2 mins. The stuffing will become dry. Now take besan in a bowl, add salt, amchur powder, red chilli powder, garam masala and add little amount of water ( 1 ½ tbsp) and mix well to make a smooth paste. Now cut the edges of the bread and spread the potato mixture on the bread slices. Cover it with another bread slice. Cut the bread into four slices/ two slices. Heat the oil for deep frying. Take the prepared bread slices and put them in the oil. Fry them two sides till they turn golden brown in color.

Note: Popularly white bread is used, however brown bread can also be used.
