Bread Pakora Recipe with Stuffed Potato and peas

Being an Indian, bread pakoda is one of the most favourite all time snack at my home, I love to eat it not only between meals but many a times it is my meal as well because it's that filling and yummylicious. I specially love devouring it in rainy season and it complements winter season as well, thinking about hot spicy bread pakoda in chili winter days is enough to make me crave for it real bad. It simply is pure heaven. Thinking about rains reminds me all different kind of pakodas my mummy makes like moong daal pakoda, mixed veg pakoda, onion potato pokada, cheesy bites. I simple relish that time.

I want to share the easy yet delicious recipe of delectable bread pakodas stuffed with potatos and peas.

INGREDIENTS (measuring:1 cup = 250 ml)

For the stuffing:
  • 3-4 pealed, boiled mashed potato.
  • 1 cup of boiled peas, squish it a little. You can use both frozen or fresh.
  • green chillies finely chopped (1 or 2 depending upon the spice you can handle)
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped coriander.
  • 1/2 tablespoon of red chilli powder (can alter according to your taste bud)
  • 1 tablespoon of chaat masala
  • 1/2 tablespoon of dry raw mango powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper powder
  • 1/2 black salt
  • salt to taste (you can use sea salt as well)
For batter :
  • 3 1/2 cup basen (chick pea flour)
  • pinch of asafoetida
  • 1/2 tablespoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1/2 tablespoon carom seeds
  •  6 slices of white or brown bread (any size)
  • water
  • salt to taste
  • oil
Have red chili sauce handy too.


For filling:

  •  Mix mash potatoes in a big bowl with mashed peas then mix it really well. Potatoes should be really well mashed, make sure not to leave it chunky.
  • Now add all the spices and coriander in the bowl
  • add salt to taste
  • now again mix it all well so that the mash is even and taste it, if you like it the leave it aside else add more spices according to your likings
For Batter :
  •  In a big bowl, take chick peas flour.
  • Add asafoetida, carom seeds, spices, and salt to it.
  • add around 1/2 cup of water and mix it well.
  •  Then keep adding water till it's not too thick but not too runny as well. Good enough to coat the bread slices. Keep stirring the batter using wisk.
  • Now add 1/2 tablespoon of oil to it and mix again so the batter is even.
  • keep the batter aside
  •  Put some oil on the stove to heat, for deep frying.
  • Slice the bread in triangular shape
  • now spread some red chili sauce on one side of a slice
  • spread the stuffing evenly
  • and generously over the sauce
  • now put another bread slice over it
  • then put the bread slices in the batter and coat it well from both the sides.
  • Put it into the hot oil and let it fry till the color goes slightly golden, make sure not to burn it.
  • Repeat the process for all the pakodas.
Serve hot with green mint chutney/tomato ketchup/ chili sauce and enjoy
