Bread pakora is a very famous tea time snack in North India. But, you can have it any time.
Bread pakora is basically a snack that is coated with besan batter and inside the potato stuffing is filled.
We can make bread pakora in three different ways like plain bread pakora (without any stuffing), bread pakora stuffed with potatoes and paneer bread pakora.
It is so popular that it is easily available in small shops in the streets and small restaurant. Many shops sell only bread pakora, samosa, tea only.
Bread pakora, samosa and pakora tastes very good in rainy season and winters. But in India we eat it whole year.
Recipe of bread pakora is not difficult. Anyone can make bread pakora. Instead of having market bread pakora try home made bread pakora. You will love it.
Paneer bread pakora has paneer inside the bread apart from the potato stuffing. It tastes very good.
It’s the best companion is dhaniya pudina chutney, sweet red chutney, tomato ketchup, and a cup of tea.
It is a perfect tea time snack. In office generally people have tea with samosa or bread pakora.
I have made a video of the paneer bread pakora recipe. The recipe of plain bread pakora and bread pakora (stuffed with only potato stuffing) is very similar to this recipe. The recipe of the batter is the same, the difference is only in the stuffing of the pakora.
Some people add raisins (kishmish) and cashew in it to give a more rich flavor. If you want you can also add this in your potato mixture.
