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 .
- Cut each bread slice into 4 equal pieces using a sharp knife. You will get 24 bread pieces in all. Keep aside.
- Combine all the ingredients, except the bread pieces and coriander in a deep bowl along with approx. ¾ cup of water and whisk well.
- Add the coriander and mix well.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, dip one bread piece at a time in the batter and deep-fry on a medium flame till it turns crisp and golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper. You can deep-fry 5 to 6 pieces at a time.
- Repeat step 4 to deep-fry more pakoras.
- Serve immediately with tomato ketchup and green chutney.
