Bread-Onion Pakoras/ Bread Pakora In A Different Way


If you are a pakora lover and always in search of new flavours then this is for you. These pakoras are the best use of leftover thick pieces of bread slices which no one wants to eat. These slices of bread are always neglected and finally thrown out. Most of you might agree with me. These bits not only make the pakoras crisp but also increase the volume of the batter

Whenever we have cravings for these deep-fried fritters,  I add the bits of this thick bread slice into the batter with other veggies. Trust me no one would be able to find out the bread bits until you yourself reveal. These crisp golden beauties are worth to be cherished!
