Like pakoras – a bread pakora is fried deliciousness!
Depending on where in the country you are they’re either called bread pakora or besan toast. I’m tempted to be lame and do the,”If a rose were called by any other name….”. I shall, however, refrain and just say regardless of the name – YUM!
Whether grabbing a few bread pakoras from a roadside stand or making them at home, they are an awesome winter treat. A fresh, piping hot bread pakora, masala chai, and a side of hot sauce. It’s the best part of early mornings during the winter. Punjab and Delhi get insanely foggy during the winter. And to no surprise, the weather is cool and somewhat perfect for prancing about the country. It was standard fare to have guests visit during the winters, and of course, everyone wants to do the trek from Delhi to Agra. So you’d hop in the car around 6 am, stop at a dhaba around 9-ish for chai and bread pakoras. Reach the Taj by noon, potter about and head home by evening, making sure to stop at a different dhaba for a different treat.
This recipe is shockingly easy to make and sure to quickly become one of your favorites. The nice thing about it is that it’s very similar to the recipe for pakoras, so you can always make a number of different items.
