bread pakora recipe with stuffed potato, how to make bread pakora

bread pakora recipe with stuffed mashed potatoes – bread pakora is a favorite breakfast and tea time snack at our home. everyone loves it and i often make it when its dark, dull, cold and pouring outside. its a great snack to have during rains.

when it pours cats and dogs outside, then stuffed warm potato bread pakora with a sweet sauce and a spicy chutney accompanied by a cuppa of hot indian masala chai is bliss. my fond memories of bread pakoda are of course having them on street side stalls and also having these during the weekend for breakfasts.

basically there are two ways bread pakodas are made.

i make both. when we need to have some hot snack quickly, then i make plain bread pakora. here the bread slices are dipped in besan (chickpea flour batter) spiced with ajwain, red chili powder, asafoetida, salt and deep fried. another similar recipe is bread rolls with stuffed potatoes and cheese bread pakora recipe.

the stuffed bread pakora is stuffed with a filling of mashed potatoes, dipped in besan and deep fried. one can be innovative in making the filling. though, mashed potatoes is a common filling used, there are other fillings that can be used, like, paneer (cottage cheese filling), cheese and even green peas. you can also have a look at paneer bread rolls recipe and baked bread potato rolls.

after a long time, i am sharing this recipe of potato stuffed bread pakora, even though i make it pretty often.
