Bread Pakodas are slices of bread deep fried with spicy besan coating. Makes an anytime snack when you have unexpected visitors ... or when you have leftover besan batter after making batata vadas ..
RECIPE SERVES 2-3
In a big bowl, add the following ingredients
1 cups besan
2 tablespoons rava (sooji) or rice flour (to make the cover more crisp)
2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon haldi
1/2 tablespoon green chilli paste
1 teaspoons red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon ajmo (ajwain seeds)
Mix all the dry ingredients with a spoon. Little by little, add 1 cup water such that there are no lumps in the batter. You might need 2-3 spoons of more water if batter looks very thick.
With the help of scissors, cut criss cross on 5 bread slices to get 4 triangles out of 1 bread slice. Cut all slices & keep aside.
Heat oil on medium high flame for 10 mins. In small batches, fry the bread pakodas.
Dip a traingle in the besan batter, evenly coat & deep fry till golden brown.
Serve hot with Cilantro chutney & Tomato Ketchup.
Prepare & enjoy !!!
