Prepare the Bread Pakora: Heat the 1/2 cup oil in a frying pan. Take 2 triangular pieces of the bread and fill it with the potato stuffing. Dip it in the batter till it is entirely covered by the batter. Deep fry in the oil for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remember to keep the oil in medium heat.

This is a very tasty snack and goes very well at tea time.

*Editor's Note: This looks delicious. For our British and Canadian readers the spices may be readily available. I wasn't familiar with some of the ingredients so I looked them up:

Ajwain: (Other names) Carom, Ajowan, Bishop's Weed, Seeds Of Bishop's Weed

Substitutions: A mild oregano

Asafoetida: (Other names) Asafetida, Assafetida, Assafoetida, Devil's Dung, Devil's Durt, Food of the Gods (Persian), Laser (Roman), Stinking Gum

Ad

Substitutions: It has a mild onion flavor so crushed dried onion might be a good substitute.

Nigella: (Other names) Black Cumin

Substitutions: Kala Jeera (Siya Zeera) is also known as black cumin and often confused with Nigella. More common substitutes are celery seeds, cumin seeds, sesame seeds and oregano.

Garam Masala: This is a blend of hot Indian spices and should be readily available in grocery stores.
