Notes on bread pakora recipe. 1. Cut each bread slice into 4 equal pieces using a sharp knife. You will get 24 bread pieces in all. Keep aside. 2. In a deep bowl, take besan. This is the most popular flour used to make varieties of pakoda recipes. 3. Then add rice flour which provides a very nice crispy texture to the bread pakodas on frying. 4. Add approx. ¾ cup of water. If you mistakenly add more water and the pakora batter has turned runny then add besan or sooji to thicken the batter again. 5. Using a whisk, mix well to make a batter. The batter must be lump-free. In case, you find it lumpy then use a hand blender to mix it well. 6. Always drop the bread slices to be fried from the sides of the pan or else you will be splattered with hot oil.
With the mild spiciness of green chillies and the appetising aroma of coriander, the Punjabi 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.
