Bread Pakoda

Bread pakodas, just like thool pakodas are made with stale bread.I found this recipe in a mallika badrinath cookbook a long back.Since then i have been making this delicious crispy pakodas.One of the many uses of stale bread.This is my entry to this month's Monthly Mingle - Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres Hosted by Mansi of Fun and Food.


Ingredients

White Bread sliices - 10
Red onion - 1 (chopped fine)
Green chillies - 5 (chopped fine)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Kadala maavu/Channa flour/Besan - 2tbsp
Yougurt - 1tbsp (well beaten)
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp (chopped fine)
Oil - for deep frying
Salt - as needed

Method

Cut out the brown edges of the bread slices.Tear off the white part into small pieces.In a vessel slightly mix the bread slices with yougurt.Don't mush them.Let it rest for another 15 minutes.To this mixture add onion,green chillies,turmeric,channa flour,coriander leaves and salt.Slighlty mix so that everything comes together.With a fork and spoon, drop the mixture in to the hot oil for deep frying.Fry till they are golden brown.Drain the pakodas in a paper towel.Serve them with ketup or chutney.
