Bread Pakora – Bread Bajji – Indian Fritters Recipe

Bread Pakora / Bread Bajji – Bread pieces dipped in spicy batter and deep fried  – Bread pakora or pakoda is an Indian fritter snack in which the bread slices are coated with the spice batter of besan & rice flour and deep fried in oil. It’s a perfect evening snack to pair with evening tea or coffee especially on a rainy day.

Pakora and Bhaji are the common easy fried snacks prepared frequently in most of the homes in India. Almost all the tea shops would have bajji and onion pakoras in the evening time. My favorite tea-shop fritter is mullu bonda – Big round shaped, finely chopped onions would be dipped in gram flour batter and deep fried. 🙂 Hot mullu bonda followed by steaming coffee would be great on evenings.

We can prepare bajji/pakoras with potato, brinjal, plantain, cabbage, okra, chayote and several others. Though, we can have them with tea, they go better with rice as well. Also, it involves washing, peeling & slicing of vegetables. That takes a bit more time and work especially when you have hungry kids after school or surprise guest visits. Bread Pakora is an easy snack that can save you all that time. All you have to do is just make the batter, dip the slices & fry them. (Ready-mix is also available to make the batter). The crunchy bread pakoras don’t even need any dip/chutney, you can serve it with just ketchup. Phew!!!

  1. Do not soak the bread slices in batter (like we do vegetable bajji) prior to frying as it might get soggy.
  2. I did not remove the crust in the bread, as it gives a nice crunchy edges to the bread pakora.
  3. If you have left over batter that is not enough for another bread, slice some onions and make onion pakoras – No leftovers, no waste. 🙂
