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..
