Bread pakora (healthier version)

It is a healthier version of the popular tea time snack. I used whole grain bread which I dipped in spiced gram flour batter and then shallow fried it. Pair it with a side of salad, your favorite chutney or ketchup and tea.
Whole grain bread (sides removed), gram flour, about a cup(besan), rice flour 2-3 tsp, cilantro and green chillies.
Dry masalas: Haldi, red chilli powder, ajwain powder (carom seed powder), asofoetida, garam masala, black salt and salt to taste, oil for shallow frying.


Cut the end of breads and slice each bread into 2-3 pieces. Mix all the dry masalas with besan and rice flour add water and mix well. It should be of a pouring consistency. Now add chopped cilantro and green chillies. Dip each slice of bread in the batter to cover both sides. Cook adding little oil on low heat in a non stick pan on both sides till crisp and done.
