Procedure for preparing Aloo Bread Pakoray:
- Boil potatoes really well until tender. Mash them using fork or potato masher when warm.
- Add black pepper, salt, red chili powder, chopped green chilies and coriander leaves. Mix well and keep them aside.
- Prepare frying batter by mixing besan/gram flour in a bowl with all seasoning and little water.
- Gradually add water to form a smooth paste. Keep it aside.
- Heat oil in a pan while you prepare bread pakoras.
- Now take bread slices and cut them in half (triangle or rectangle – whichever shape you prefer).
- Apply green chutney on one slice and put some potato mixture (1-2 tablespoon) on it. Spread it evenly.
- Cover it with another slice and gently press to form a sandwich.
- Now coat the sandwich in prepared besan batter evenly. Make sure not to put too much coating as it can break the bread.
- Shallow fry coated sandwich turning both sides until golden and crisp.
- Take them out on kitchen paper to drain excess oil. Repeat the same procedure for rest of pakoray.
Tip: Serve warm with ketchup and tea.
