I love deep fried foods. Before marriage, breakfast in our house would be bhajiyas, bread pakoda, bread roll, paranthas etc. After marriage it all changed to idlis, dosas, poha, upma etc. more healthier no doubt. But I do miss the deep fried foods from my childhood. And in this cold weather, what can be more satisfying than a plate of deep fried snacks for breakfast.
So here goes the recipe
White bread slices 4
1 cup besan or gram flour
1 tblsp finely chopped onion
1 tblsp finely chopped coriander leaves
2-3 green chillies finely chopped
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
I use white bread for this recipe bcos that is what we had as kids and i still love these snacks with white bread.
Cut each bread slice into 2 pieces at an angle.
Mix the besan, onions, green chilies, green coriander, salt, chili powder, coriander powder and salt. Add enough water to make a batter, which should not be too thick or too thin. Something like the consistency of dosa batter.
Heat oil. reduce the heat to medium. Add 1 tblsp of hot oil to the batter and mix well. Then dip each piece in the batter and deep fry in hot oil on medium heat till golden in color.
Serve with either green chutney or sauce.
