I have heard about bread bajji, but until I tried, I had no idea of how it would taste or about the texture.

When my in-laws were here, I asked mami how it would taste and she told it turns out delicious.

So one day, for evening snack I made this along with chilli bajji. To my surprise, it was tasting great, I could not guess the thing inside bajji and it was super pillow soft too. How cool!

No veggies needed to make bajji! I know this can be made by sandwiching green chutney too, but for the first time, I wanted to make it simple. So tried it plain.

Also the shape can be differently cut with a cookie cutter to please the kids. So here’s the simple bread pakora or bread bajji recipe, how ever you call it.

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix gram flour (besan), rice flour, cooking soda, asafoetida, ajwain (if adding), chilli powder, ghee and salt with water to make a batter. Let the batter be thick but the consistency should be enough to easily spread, coat the bread slices. So adjust the consistency accordingly.Bread bajji - Bread pakora recipe | Easy Indian snacks - Raks Kitchen (3)
  2. I used instant bajji mix my MIL brought. So colour may vary from above. Cut off the edges of the bread and I cut them into triangles as shown in the picture. The way you cut is your choice according to your choice of shape. Mean while heat oil.Bread bajji - Bread pakora recipe | Easy Indian snacks - Raks Kitchen (4)
  3. Dip each piece of bread in the batter and fry in hot oil. Cook both sides over medium flame. For each batch, while dropping the pakoras, keep the flame high.Bread bajji - Bread pakora recipe | Easy Indian snacks - Raks Kitchen (5)
  4. Fry both sides until golden in colour and drain in paper towel.Bread bajji - Bread pakora recipe | Easy Indian snacks - Raks Kitchen (6)

Serve hot with green chutney or simply with tomato chilli sauce. Perfect for tea time, especially easy to make when you have guests.

    I make bread pakoras by stuffing potato and peas sabji. Or sometimes I even stuff chicken nuggets with some stir fried cabbage. They taste amazing 🙂 I have their recipes on my blog too.

    I have fond memories of this bajji as a child. Amma used to prepare this often then. Thanks for reminding

    You can also add a dollop of idly/ dosa batter instead of the rice flour. It will give u an even more crispier crust.

    My mom even does the same at times. But I avoid that as it drinks oil too. But I agree it tastes great.
