Bread Pakoda


Bread Pakoda
Today I am posting a delicious and easy to make snack which is every ones favorite. It has a flavorful filling with coriander mint chutney and is served with date tamarind chutney.

1)Bread slices-6-8

2)For the batter
Gram flour- 3/4 cup
Rice flour- 2 tbs
Chilly powder- 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder-1/3 tsp
Coriander powder- 1/2 tsp
Amchur powder- 1/3
Ajwain seeds- 1/3 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves- 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

3)For the chutney
Coriander leaves chopped- 1 cup
Mint leaves- 1/3 cup
Green chilly-3
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Shallots- 2
Tamarind- a small ball
salt to taste


Grind all ingredients under chutney into a fine paste and keep aside. Mix all ingredients listed under 2 into a smooth batter,just like dosa batter consistency.It should not be too thick or too thin.
Cut edges of the bread and make it even.
Spread the chutney evenly on the bread . Roll and stick the edge using a little water with your finger tips. You can also cut the bread into equal part and sandwich the chutney. Dip this in the prepared batter, coat evenly and drop into hot oil and fry this on both sides. This will take around two minutes on medium flame.Once fried place on a paper towel so that the excess grease is removed.
Serve this with dates and tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup along with tea.

Try this
Hope you will all enjoy..

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
