Street Style Bread Pakoda

Street-style bread pakoda is a popular Indian snack that features deep-fried bread slices stuffed with a spicy potato filling. It is often served with chutney or ketchup and is enjoyed by people of all ages. Here's a recipe to make street-style bread pakoda:


For the filling:

  • 2 large potatoes, boiled and mashed
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves, chopped

For the batter:

  • 1 cup chickpea flour (besan)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
  • Salt to taste
  • Water (as needed)

Other ingredients:

  • Slices of bread
  • Oil for deep frying


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the boiled and mashed potatoes, chopped onions, green chili, ginger-garlic paste, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala, salt, and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well to form a uniform filling.
  2. Take two slices of bread and trim the edges if desired. Spread a generous amount of the potato filling on one slice of bread and cover it with the other slice to make a sandwich.
  3. Cut the sandwich into halves or quarters as per your preference.
  4. In a separate bowl, prepare the batter for coating the bread pakodas. Mix chickpea flour, red chili powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida, and salt. Gradually add water and whisk until you achieve a smooth and thick batter consistency.
  5. Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai over medium heat.
  6. Dip each prepared bread pakoda into the batter, ensuring that it is coated evenly.
  7. Carefully drop the coated pakodas into the hot oil and fry them until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip them occasionally for even frying. Remove them from the oil using a slotted spoon and drain excess oil on a paper towel.
  8. Repeat the process for the remaining bread pakodas.
  9. Serve the street-style bread pakodas hot with your favorite chutney, ketchup, or dip.

Street-style bread pakodas are best enjoyed when fresh and crispy. They are commonly served as a tea-time snack or as a popular street food option in India. Enjoy the delightful combination of crispy bread and spicy potato filling!
