How to make the recipe?
  1. Slit bread into 2 pieces Or into triangular shape. Keep them aside.
  2. Take a mixing bowl. Mix all the ingredients except oil and water. Lastly add 2 tbsp oil and water. Beat this mixture with a spoon. Ensure no lumps are formed.
  3. The batter should be of thick consistency. If your batter is thin add some more flour to it.
  4. Place a frying pan with oil on medium heat. Allow the oil to get hot.
  5. Dip sliced bread into the batter. Coat from all sides. Gently leave them in hot oil. Fry from both sides until nice golden brown in color.
  6. Repeat the same with other sliced bread. Place them on tissue napkins to absorb excess oil.
  7. Serve hot on a platter with chutney, sauce along with a hot cup of tea. I served my bread pakoras with garlic coconut chutney.
