Easy Bread Pakoda


Bread Pakodas are usually made with a potato stuffing and/or green chutney. This is an easy version which can be done within few minutes. For me it is the easiest way to use left-over bread. I keep buying bread every week though we don't like it much. Finally when it gets close to the expiry date, I have to find some interesting recipe to pep it up. This pakoda was enjoyed by my little girl which made me very happy. She has these words 'Supaa'(Super) or Nummee(Yummy) when she enjoys food and this is the best appreciation I can  get.

Ingredients:

Bread slices - 4 or 5
Gram flour/Besan - 1 cup
Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Hing/Asafoetida powder - a pinch
Green chillies - 2, finely chopped OR Red chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Chopped coriander leaves 
Salt to taste
Water
Oil to deep fry

Preparation:

1. In a bowl, add besan, jeera, hing, chilly powder or green chillies, salt  and enough water to make a thick batter. Add coriander leaves and mix well.
2. Cut out the brown sides of the bread and discard. Cut the bread slices to rectangles or triangles. 
3. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. Dip the bread peices in batter and then slowly drop to the oil. Deep fry on both sides till gloden.
 
Serve hot with tomato ketchup or green chutney.
