Bread Pakora/Pakoda

'Bread Pakore ki Kasam' ....

For those who don't know.... ' Bread Pakora is a street-snack available allover  north India which recently got its fame through YRF's 'Band Baaja Baarat' in which Ranbir Singh says 'Bread Pakore ki Kasam' throughout the movie. It was when I saw this movie again recently that I remembered about this post being pending since last ramadan.

Pakoras and lots of varieties are seen in almost all parts of India, but North Indians are experts in this. We keralites are unfamiliar about pakoras apart from the one with dal (Parippu vada) and the other with onion (ullivada).. & haa yes.. uzhunnu vada.

 During last ramadan, I did post one recipe  'Bhindi Pakoras which was delicious ,spicy and crispy too. This one is usually served with a chutney ,which can be plated separately as a dip or pour over pakoras. I got this recipe from one of my fb friends, Femi Ansari, more than a year now. You can substitute thinly sliced Eggplants/Brinjal instead of breads.

Ingredients:

For Batter:

White Bread
Besan (chick pea flour)/kadalapodi 1 cup
Rice flour/Arippodi 1 tbsp
Salt
Cumin powder 1 tsp
Green chilly 2 finely chopped
Coriander 1/2 cup ,chopped
Water ,enough for the batter (about 3/4 cup)

for chutney:

Youghurt 1 cup
Coconut 1/2cup
Tomato 1/2
Coriander 3 tbsp
Cumin seed 1 tsp
Red chillies 3 pcs

Method:

Heat oil in a karahi.

Mix all the ingredients of the batter till smooth and make sure that the consistency should be fair enough to dip the batter and that the bread should be coated nicely. It should not be too thin to be coated nor too thick. I like it slightly thick whereas many prefer thin batter. That completely depends on you.

Cut breads in triangular or any other shapes.

Dip breads in the batter one at a time and deep fry  till nicely brown & crispy.

For chutney, blend all the ingredients together.
