I’d used white bread to make Bread Pakoras, you can use brown bread instead. Firstly, cut the bread slices in the triangle shape and keep them aside. Cover.
Take boiled and mashed potatoes in a bowl. Add zeera, amchur, garam masala, salt, green chillies and freshly chopped green coriander. Mix well.
In a deep bowl take besan or gram flour, add 2 pinches of salt, red chilli powder and some coriander leaves. Make batter by adding water slowly into it. The batter should not be too thick nor too flowy. Keep aside.
Now take one sliced triangular bread, keep it on a plate, put the potato masala stuffing over it and cover it with another slice of bread. Repeat the same process for all and keep them aside.
Now it’s time heat oil in a wok or kadhai for deep frying the bread pakoras. As soon as the oil is hot take the bread pakora and dip into the besan batter. Coat well. You can take the help of spoon or fork. Immediately put this bread pakora to the wok for deep frying.
Fry it on low to medium flame and keep flipping pakora so that it is fried properly. Fry till it turns brown in colour. Do not let it burn. Take it out on a paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
Repeat the process for all Bread pakoras.
Take the Bread Pakoras in a serving plate, and have with spicy green chutney or tomato ketchup, whichever way you like.
- Quickly coat the besan batter on the bread pakoras. Do not let them sit for a minute or two else the bread will absorb the moisture making it difficult for you to fry.
- Do not fry the bread pakoras on high flame.
- While mixing the mashed potatoes check the taste of salt and chillies. It shouldn’t be bland.
