Bread Pakoras (Potato Stuffed Deep Fried Bread) Recipe!!

Monsoon is finally here in IL. We have been getting rain almost everyday and on such days I crave for Pakoras :) Usually I go for Cauliflower Pakoras (Recipe here) or simple Potato-Onion Pakoras but this time I wanted something different and at the same time wanted to make use of Bread that was lying in my kitchen unopened. I made Bread Pakoras! I love Bread Pakoras because they are filling, easy to make as well as are super crunchy and yummy. Here you go guys, enjoy the step by step process:
Yumminess :x

Prep time: 20min(s) Cook time:20min(s) Total time: 40min(s)  

Things you will need:
  • Bread Slices (4-5)
  • Potato (1 large, boiled/microwaved and mashed)
  • Onion (1, medium size, finely chopped)
  • Ginger-Garlic Paste (1 table spoon)
  • Cilantro (1/2 cup, finely chopped)
  • Salt (according to taste) 
  • Serrano Pepper/Green Chilies (1-2, finely chopped)
  • Red Chili Powder (optional, 2 tea spoons)
  • Cumin-Coriander Powder (1 table spoon)
  • Oil (3 cups)
  • Besan/Gram Flour (1 cup)
  1. On a deep dish, add mashed potatoes, chopped onion, Serrano pepper, cilantro, ginger-garlic paste, salt, red chili and cumin-coriander powder. Mix everything well.
  2. On a bowl, add besan and 2 and 1/2 cups of water. Stir well and make sure liquid is thinner in consistency.
  3. Heat oil on a heat between medium and high. Before you go to next steps.
  4. Take a slice of a bread and top it with potato mixture from step 1. Close it up with a regular slice and cut in whichever shapes and sizes you want. I prefer diagonal.
  5. After cutting, dip bread in Besan Mixture (step 2). Make sure to stir the mixture before you dip.
  6. Fry dipped bread until red and crispy.
  7. Enjoy with tomato chutney (Golbheda ko Achar) (Recipe Here) or any kind of ketchup :)
