Bread pakoda
Written by Jayashree
Published on January 26, 2016

Winter brings it own blessings for us. Beautiful season awaits along with good food for the taste buds.This cold weather, urges us to deep fry some snacks as pakodas and other kind with a cup of hot tea. Bread pakoda is an easy to make snack that can be made in a jiffy. Do give a try to this version of mine.

The only essential is bread, preferably a day old.  I have added onions and coriander to the batter which give a tinge of taste to it.  This is a new concept of mine, usually it is  dipped only in gram flour and fried.The batter should be a little thick in consistency, otherwise the onions will not cover it.Over to the recipe below, for more details.
