  • 4 slice White Bread

For The Batter:

  • 150 gm Gram Flour
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • ½ tsp Kashmiri Chilli Powder
  • Salt To Taste

For The Potato Mix:

  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 600 g Potatoes
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 7-8 Curry Leaves
  • 1-2 Green Chillies
  • 2 tsp Chopped Ginger
  • ½ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 60 g Green Peas (Fresh OR Frozen)
  • 1 tbsp Coriander
  • Lemon Juice
  • Salt To Taste


To Make The Potato Mix:

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Add the asafoetida followed by mustard seeds. As they splutter add the curry leaves and green chillies. Fry for a minute on medium heat and add the chopped ginger. Fry for a further minute
  • Add turmeric powder; stir and add the potatoes along with the green peas. Stir to make sure the mix is evenly colored. Cover and steam on a low heat for 3-4 minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander, add lemon juice and season to taste. Let the mix cool while you make the gram flour batter.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the gram flour along with the powdered spices and salt. Add water and whisk well to make a smooth batter. You’re looking for a double cream consistency
  • Place the sliced bread on a plate and the spiced potato mix. Flatten the potato mix with the back of the spoon. Place another slice over it to make a sandwich. Cut the sandwich diagonally. Repeat for rest of the potato mix
  • Heat oil in a wok or large pan for deep frying. Dip the potato sandwich in the gram flour batter mix and deep fry until it is light brown and crisp all over around 1-2 minutes each side. Drain on kitchen paper. Cut the bread pakoda into smaller pieces and serve warm with a chutney.
