Bread Pakoras with a touch of Cilantro !!

Bread Pakoras- Another nostalgic one that brings back all memories from my college and hostel days.Though its deep fried in oil but once in a while I think that's acceptable,right?? This is a very filling snack for kids.I usually make it get over the left over bread slices.This is a very popular snack in India and the only modification I have done is the addition of cilantro leaves.Enjoy this snack on a rainy day with a cup of tea,you gonna definitely ask for more :-)






Ingredients
bread 4 slices
oil to fry

For batter
gram flour (besan)1 cup
rice flour 1 tbsp (to give crispy texture)
cumin seeds 1 tsp
asafoetida a pinch
cilantro 1/4 cup chopped
green chillies 2 fine chopped
salt as required
water 1/2-3/4 cup


Method
-Make a batter using the ingredients listed under batter and keep aside.(The batter should be of dosa or pancake consistency).
-Remove the crust from all sides of bread.Cut the bread slice into 3 parts.
-Heat oil in a kadai and check whether the oil is hot by dropping a bit of batter,if it sizzles up its done.
-Dip each bread slice into the batter and slowly spoon into the boiling oil.
-Flip the other side and fry till its done.(Turn occasionally and fry till its golden brown)
-Serve with green chutney/ tamarind chutney/ tomato ketchup !!


Servings ~12bites

NOTES-
* You can use your preferred bread,I have used whole wheat& honey bread.
* Don't over heat the oil otherwise the pakoras may not cook well.Cook on medium heat.
* You can replace cilantro with fenugreek leaves or spinach leaves.

Must be a lip-smacking snack!

It's a good idea. The green from leaves (whether cilantro, fenugreek or spinach) sure adds some color to the bread pakoda.

Otherwise they would look plain and boring, isn't it? :)
