For the final day of mini bites, here is one more recipe with bread. My mom used to make this bread pakora what we called as bread bajji after seeing it in a cookery show. Green chutney and sweet chutney we use for chats are spread on slices of breads, they are stacked, dipped in bajji batter and deep fried. Mostly it is so large, that you can’t even finish one. Some times we used to slice it into triangles or four squares to make them smaller. But it was one of the tastiest snack my mom made.
After marriage, I forgot so many dishes mom used to make and this was one among them. When i was thinking of some bread based recipes for this week, I remembered this. And as we need to make it mini, I divided the bread slice into 16 small squares.I usually have sweet chutney and green chutney stocked in my fridge. So making this was so easy. I loved these tiny pakoras compared to the huge ones. Even then just eating two of these fill fill your tummy. My daughter loved it too. Serve it piping hot. Only then it will be nicely crisp. When it cools down, it may become soft. Have some tomato ketchup for the side and these bites will vanish in seconds.
