Here’s how you can make this delicious snack

Step 1: In a bowl, mix besan, ajwain, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, ½ cup water and salt. Mix these ingredients well to make the mixture with an even consistency (not too thick and not too thin either).

Step 2: Cut the bread into triangular or rectangular slices. If you are using the filling, spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of the mashed potatoes on the bread. Now, cover the filling with another slice of bread. You can also avoid using the filling and continue with the recipe as is.

Step 3: Preheat the oven for 10 minutes, then bake at 180 ° C for 10-15 minutes.

The fourth step: After removing the bread pakoras from the oven, let them cool for a minute and then add chaat masala on top to serve.

This recipe can be tried with various types of spices and herbs, such as ginger garlic paste, black pepper powder and curry powder. You can also try the cheese filling or paneer as well.

Bread pakora is best served with mint sauce or tomato ketchup, and of course, a hot cup of tea!
