Tasty and crispy, this is one of the most famous tea-time snacks in India. It is often sold by roadside vendors, and sells like a rage in the winter months!

The Bread Pakora is quite easy to make too, as it uses just common ingredients. The sliced bread is dipped in a batter of besan and rice flour perked up with a dash of spices, and deep-fried till perfectly crisp.

With the mild spiciness of green chillies and the appetizing aroma of coriander, the Bread Pakora is truly an irresistible snack. It is much-loved by kids too, and can be served as an after-school treat.

You can also try other snacks like the Oats Bhel or Paneer Nuggets .
