Avinash Patnaik – recipe curator, food stylist, and photographer from Bhubaneswar teaches us how to make his all-time favorite ‘Bread Pakora.’
- 4 slices of bread (white or brown, depending on your bread preference)
- 1 cup besan (Gram flour)
- 1 pinch Haldi (turmeric Powder)
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black salt
- 1-2 green chilies, finely chopped
- Chopped Coriander
- Salt to taste
- Water as required to make the batter
- Refined oil for deep frying
Directions to cook:
- Use any regular white bread (Brown if you are health conscious) and slice into triangular pieces by cutting it diagonally in between.
- Take 1 small bowl of besan(gram flour) add a pinch of turmeric, salt to taste(add little black salt as well), half a teaspoon cumin & carom seeds, finely chopped chilly and coriander leaf. Make a thin batter by adding water as per requirement ( batter should not be very runny nor too thick).
Heat a frying pan and add refined oil for deep frying the bread
Once the oil is sufficiently hot, dip the bread slices into the besan batter – one by one, and deep fry it over medium to high flame.
- Brown them on both sides, take it out and drain the excess oil with a napkin. Deep fry the remaining slices.
- Serve hot with your favorite sauce or dipping. (p.s. Health-conscious people can pan fry it instead of deep-frying)
