Weekend calls for indulgence and we can’t agree to it more. It is that time of the week when we skip dieting and go on a bingeing spree. From a wholesome brunch to greasy, oily and decadent snacks – we devour everything without a second thought in mind. Considering this, we found you a classic snack recipe that never fails to impress us. It’s the spicy and crispy bread pakora. Flavourful aloo stuffed breads, dunked in besan mix and deep fried until golden brown – bread pakora makes for the ultimate chai-time snack. This is why we find bread pakora available almost everywhere across India – from ‘nukkad’ to a local café.
