Tips and Tricks

1) The batter must have even consistency.
2) Don’t keep the flame at high while frying. As it will hamper the colours of the pakoda.
3) properly stick the sides of the bread before dipping and frying them.

Healthier version

1) You can use brown bread instead of white bread.
2) You can avoid the use of red chilli completely. You can use green chillies instead.
3) You can skip the potato stuffing if you are health conscious by simply frying the dipped brown bread.
