bread-pakora

bread pakora recipe – a very popular and quick breakfast snack. i usually make bread pakora when i have to make a quick breakfast or evening snack for hubby dear.

there is no stuffing involved, just dipping the bread in the gram flour batter and frying them. easy and quick. i have already posted recipe of bread pakora with potato stuffing.

this recipe also can be called plain bread pakora or just bread pakora. the choice of bread to be used depends upon you. white bread pakora tastes fabulous but if you want healthier options you could choose brown bread, flax seed bread, wheat germ bread etc.

you could serve the bread pakora with any chutney like sweet tamarind dates chutney, mint coriander chutney, or even coconut chutney. usually at home we have the pakoras with tomato sauce. so i served the bread pakora with tomato sauce and dry onion garlic chutney.
