As I said If you have bread at home if you want to munch something or suddenly you get a visitor, this will be the perfect snack goes very well with Cup of Coffee or Tea.
I have used Gram (channa gram), little rice flour to give crispness, salt and jeera. No need to use cooking soda since it is going to be served or eaten when it is just prepared. So I have not used any cooking soda or fruit salt in it.
This can be eaten as chat also. Grate some carrots, prepare some sweet and hot chutney and serve Pakoda with these things. Adding some curd on the top and sprinkling some jeera and chilly powder or chat masala also can be done. ( Though we had Dahi Pakoda I did not sprinkle any jeera or chilly powder. I like to have a limited quantity of spice and Sweet & hot chutney already have these things) I just spread the Sweet & Hot chutney on the top of Bread Pakoda, added grated carrot and on the top put a spoon of thick curd. It is really nice to have it as I said.
Lets come to the recipe.
