Step By Step Instructions With Photos for Bread Pakora Recipe

  • First steam or boil potatoes with water in a cooker. Optionally, you can also boil green peas. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When the seeds start to crackle, add finely chopped green chillies and ginger-garlic paste. Optionally curry leaves can be added. Saute these for a minute or two.

  • Add this mixture to peeled and mashed potatoes and mix it thoroughly. A very small quantity of Black Pepper can also be added to this mix. 

  • Take gram flour in a mixing bowl and add Salt, Red Chilli Powder & Turmeric Powder to the mixture. Add roughly 1/2 cup water slowly to get a batter of coating consistency.

  • Take bread pieces and cut them diagonally or vertically to get 2 triangular or rectangular halves. Take the mashed potato mix and spread it evenly on the bread. Cover with another slice of bread. You can also apply a little green chutney on the bread if it is readily available.

    • Heat oil in a frying pan. Press the Bread slices well while taking care that they hold the filling properly. If bread pieces do not stick together wet your hand in water and before trying to stick them. Gently dip the stuffed piece of bread in the batter. Ensure that all sides of the bread are coated well with the batter. 

    • Immediately after dipping the stuffed bread piece in batter, place it gently in the hot oil. Fry the Bread Pakora on a medium flame, flipping it so that it is fried evenly and continue till it is crispy golden on all the sides. Do not overcrowd the frying pan and restrict the number of triangles (Bread Pakora) to one or two pieces only.

    • After frying, drain the Bread Pakoras on an absorbent paper to drain the excess oil. Serve them hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
