Stuffed Bread Pakora with a twist

Hi Friends .....
Bread Pakora yummy and favorite snack of all age group.
Have it in breakfast or with a cup of tea.....Normally we make bread pakora with chickpea flour but this time I tried in a different style....Using yellow moong dal batter.
I hope you all will like the way I made it !!!

4 bread slices 
1 cup yellow moong dal 
Red chilly powder
Oil for frying
For stuffing:
4 boiled and mashed potatoes
1 onion (chopped)
Few garlic cloves (finely chopped)
2 green chilies (finely chopped)
Salt taste
1/4 tsp garam masala


To make pakora batter:
  • Wash and clean dal, keep it for 2-3 hrs in required amount of water.
  • Grind the dal into smooth paste.( It should not be too thick or too watery)
  • Mix red chilly powder, salt and keep the batter aside.

To prepare stuffing:
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in non-stick pan.
  • Add garlic, saute for few seconds.
  • Add onions and saute till they become golden pink in colour.
  • Add salt and garam masala. Mix well.
  • Add mashed potatoes and mix nicely. 
  • Cook on low flame fro 5-7 mins.
  • Remove from fire and keep the mixture aside.

Now the final step:
  • Heat oil in a kadhai.
  • In the meanwhile cut bread slices into triangle shape.
  • Spread the potato filling on one slice and cover it with another slice.
  • Now dip stuffed bread slices in the dal batter, check that batter is well coated from all the sides.
  • Drop one portion in hot oil. Fry from all the sides till it becomes golden brown in colour. (First I did shallow frying then I observed that the pakora was not fully cooked from all the sides then I switched my cooking method to deep frying)

  • Serve hot with pudina chutney or tomato ketchup.

@ Supriya, you can try shallow frying but do it on low flame, then it will be cooked properly.
