Bread Pakoras - No Fry

Last month coz of my surgery, i missed many interesting events. One among those events is Radhika's bloghop wednesdays, i was eagerly waiting to know to whom am gonna be paired this month's event. Finally i got the mail with the name of my pair,i was paired with Charul  of Tadka Masala,dunno how i missed this incredible space. Charul have an elegant space with lovely clicks, all her recipes are quite unique in their own way. Thanks to Radhika for pairing me with Charul, while going through her incredible space,immediately her no fry bread pakoras catched my attention and bookmarked it immediately to try them later, but within a week i tried twice as these bread pakoras tastes marvellous and quite easy to prepare. With less ingredients and not deep fried,these pakoras are definitely a guilt free snack to enjoy simply with a spicy chutney or else with tomato ketchup. We just loved it with a cup of tea for our evening snacks.


5nos Bread slices
1/2cup Chickpeas/Besan flour
1/4tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
Salt
2tbsp Yogurt
Water
3tbsp Oil

Take the besan flour,garam masala powder, red chilly powder, salt,yogurt in a bowl,add gradually the water to turn as a thin but not too runny paste..

Cut the bread slices diagonally, meanwhile heat enough oil in a tawa,dip the bread slice to the prepared paste and drop gently to the hot oil..fry on both sides until they turns golden brown..

Enjoy warm with ketchup or with the chutney of your choice.

I generally am not of the opinion that when you shallow fry you use lesser oil than deep frying. But in this case the main ingredient is bread - this one you should avoid deep frying- it absorbs a lot of oil and this method of yours is a good option. Will try definitely.

This method sounds so good as bread always uses so much oil upon deep frying. Will try it out next time.

Looks so crispy, I'm totally amazed that a shallow fry version can render such a crispy pakora. I love bread pakoras and with little to no oil and guilt-free, I don't need a reason to make it. Lovely!!!
