Bread Pakoras November 04 2013
6 slices white bread (buy the regular brand, not anything fancy, I use Wonder bread) - cut-off ends and diagonally slice each bread in half
Peanut / Canola / Vegetable oil to deep fry
1/2 cup Tomato ketchup
1/2 cup Green chutney
1 cup chick pea flour
Enough water to make a thick batter
1 tablespoon carom seeds
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Salt to taste
Heat oil for deep frying.
Mix in the batter ingredients in a mixing bowl and make a semi-thick batter that
will coat the bread for deep frying.
Take a slice of bread and apply chutney on one side, take another slice of bread and stack it above the first one, such that the chutney side is covered by the second bread.
Apply ketchup on the second bread (side facing up) and stack a third slice on it. Press lightly.
Dip in batter, shake off excess batter and deep fry until golden brown on all sides, flipping a couple of times and frying it evenly.
Remove using a slotted spoon and place on absorbent paper to remove excess oil. Cut it in half and serve.
