Instructions
 

Batter

  • In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients together, besan, corn starch, salt, asafetida and baking soda, mix it well. Add oil and add water slowly to make a thick and smooth batter. Set aside.

Filling

  • In a frying pan heat the oil over medium heat. When oil is moderately hot add cumin seeds, asafetida, coriander powder, ginger, green chili, and red chili powder stir fry for few seconds.
  • Next add potatoes, salt, black salt, mango powder, garam masala and sugar stir for about 2 minutes, add ½ cup of water keep stirring and keep mashing the mix if needed add little more water. Mix should be very mushy and soft like a spread. Add cilantro and mix it well.
  • Taste the potato mix it should be spicy after you spread the mix to bread and fry with batter spice level will go down. I always keep the mix extra spicy. Mix is ready keep aside.

Making Pakoras

  • Spread the mix generously on two slices of bread, then close sandwiches with other slices of bread.
  • Remove the crest from the bread all sides and slice them in the shape you like. I am slicing them in 6 pieces because the bread I am using have big slices.
  • 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.
  • Dip the bread into the batter one at a time, making sure bread are completely covered with batter. Then, slowly drop them into the frying pan.
  • Turn them quick and take them out quick. We are going to double fry these pakoras. Fry them all then put them back in frying pan and fry the pakoras until they are golden-brown both sides.

Notes

Pakoras can be serve with your choice of chutney:
Off course hot cup of Chai Masala Tea.
