Aloo bread pakora is arguably the best traditional snack for enjoying with your tea sips in monsoon time. I remember eating it in our school canteen during recess time. The simple plain bread pakora used to cost Rs 1 and the Aloo Bread Pakora was available for Rs. 2. The rupee 1 and 2 sound too artificial in today’s inflationary time. Isn’t it?

School times are over but we still get nostalgic whenever we have them with a sip of coffee! We love going back in memory lane to find moments of glory.

Keeping the conversation short and coming back to point, here is a simple and easy recipe for making aloo bread pakora at home:

  2. Add finely chopped Green Chili, Salt, Red Chili Powder, Garam Masala, Mango Powder. Mix well.
  3. Squeeze the Lemon Juice and mix well again. Potato mixture is now ready. Keep it aside.
