Bread pakoda

Cooking Time Required: 30 mins

Makes 8 bread pakodas.

For the stuffing:
Potato ( 2 nos, large ), finely chopped beetroot ( 4-5 tbs ), finely cut carrot ( 4-5 tbs ), green peas ( 1/2 cup ), cauliflower bits( 3-4 tbs ), onion ( 1 no, small ), green chilli ( 2 nos), coriander powder ( 1/3 tsp ), jeera-lanka (cumin-chilli) powder ( 1/3 tsp), turmeric, salt.

For the batter: 4 tbs besan ( gram flour), cornflour ( 2 tbs ), baking powder ( 1 pinch ), chilli powder ( 1/3 tsp), salt.

Sandwich bread - 8 slices ( with the sides cut off ) and oil for frying.

Preparation: Mix all the ingredients for the batter along with water into a paste of medium to thick consistency .Keep aside.
Cut the onion and green chilli into small pieces.

Cooking: Boil the potatoes. Peel and mash them.

Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan. Add the onion and chilli.Fry till onion becomes translucent.Add the beetroot, carrot, cauliflower and green peas. Stir fry till they are cooked .( should not take longer than 4-5 mins ).

Add the turmeric powder, coriander powder, jeera-lanka and stir fry for 30 secs. Follow with mashed potatoes and salt. Mix all the potato and the other vegetables. Cook for 5 mins.

Remove from fire and allow to cool down to a tolerable temperature. Spread a thick layer of the stuffing between 2 bread slices and press hard. Cut into two triangles.

Heat sufficient oil in a wok. Dip the bread triangles in the batter and put into the oil. Fry on both sides till golden brown. Remove from wok and keep on a blotting paper.

Serve hot with ketchup/green chutney.

Note: Bread pakoda tastes as good even when it is prepared without onion. Just add a little bit of grated ginger as a substitute.
