  3. Roll 1½ tablespoons of the mixture at a time into round balls. (The size of the potato balls will depend on the size of the bread.)
  4. Place the filling in the center of the bread and mold the bread to completely cover the potatoes all around, giving a round shape. Repeat to make all the rolls. Before frying.
  5. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a frying pan on medium high heat moderately. To check if the oil is ready, put one drop of batter in oil. The batter should come up but not change color right away.

  7. Turn them occasionally. Fry the pakoras until all sides are golden-brown.

    We tried the Bread Pakoras today and it did come out very well. The only issue I faced was that I couldn’t get the bread rolled properly around the potato filling. Any tips please ?
