Bread Pakora

  
Today since morning I have been feeling nostalgic about my college days. Over there during breaks we friends used to hangout in the canteen between classes and gossip. One food item which we relished during then was crispy and hot bread pakoras. Today I'm sharing my preparation of bread pakora.         
                                                       
Ingredients:
4 Bread slices (white or brown) I have used white here
1 1/2 cup Gram flour (besan)
1/2 tsp Carom seeds (ajwain)
1/4 tsp Asafetida (hing)
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Garma masala
Oil for deep frying


For stuffing:
1/2 cup Cottage cheese (paneer), grated
2 big Potatoes, boiled
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/4 tsp Garam masala1/4 tsp Red chilly powder
2-3 Green chillies, chopped
1 tbsp Coriander leaves, finely chopped
2-3 tsp Vegetable oil


Method:
Mash the potatoes and heat 2-3 tsp oil in a frying pan. Add cumin seeds and when they start spluttering add green chillies. Now add red chilly powder, salt and mashed potatoes. Fry for a minute then add chopped coriander leaves and garam masala. Mix thoroughly and switch off the burner. Add grated paneer and keep aside this mixture.
Remove the crusts from breads and cut very gently into two triangles. Make a batter of besan with ajwain , chilly powder, salt, baking soda, garam masala and add little water at a time to make a smooth batter. The consistency of the batter should be neither thick nor thin. Now take a piece of triangle and apply the potato filling and cover it with another slice of bread. Press it lightly so that both the bread pieces are stick to the inner stuffing.
 Heat oil in deep frying pan. Dip this triangle in gram flour batter in a manner so that it is evenly coated. Slide in hot oil and deep fry on medium flame till they are crisp and golden in color. Place the bread pakoras on a paper towel. Serve these hot and crispy pakoras with green coriander chutney and enjoy with hot cuppa.
