Stuffed Aloo Bread Pakora is a very commonly found street food in North India. Stuffed aloo bread pakora can be served along with green coriander chutney and tomato sauce.
Street foods – that term itself makes your mouth water.
Street foods are a specialty of India. Whichever state in India you go to, you would find some kind of specialty there in the form of a street food.
Pav-Bhaji, Chat varieties, Pakodas, Pani-puri etc. are some of my favorite ones. You can blame that on my affinity to Delhi but the fact is that the name itself, of any of these, makes my mouth water.
And while I make every attempt to replicate that taste when making them at home, I will be honest to say that I have never been able to do that.
Why, you ask?
That’s the thing with street foods.
In fact, you wouldn’t find the same taste for the same food at different vendors. Yet they taste yummy because they would have their own secret ingredient that they use in their recipe which makes it different from another vendor.
And funny is the fact that, this uniqueness in taste is what makes a specific vendor famous.
While I might be a fan of pav-bhaji at one vendor because I like his taste, somebody else might be a fan of the same pav-bhaji at a different vendor because they like that taste.
I so-so miss Delhi street food..
So, what would you call when you polish one of these street foods and serve it in a stylish and unique presentation.
You will call it “Maziga”.
If you are wondering what that is, then it is a restaurant in one of the malls here in Bangalore.
The last week, we decided to go have dinner there (as part of our marriage anniversary celebration.. now do wish me..lol). While we were a little skeptical because our experience with North Indian food in Bengaluru hasn’t been very encouraging, we thought we will take the risk.
And we were happy we did.
Maziga, was awesome.
The ambience was nice, the customer service was amazing and the food was simply awesome..
So where is “street food” in all of this, you might be wondering.
There were a list of street foods in their menu and we tried a few. And I should say, they all tasted yummy, particularly the “Pani-Puri”.
So if you are in Bangalore and happen to go to VR Mall, Mahadevapura, then do visit Maziga. I am sure you would love it.
On that note, let me get onto today’s recipe.
And today’s recipe is a street food. In fact, it is a variety of Pakoda.
No marks for guessing.
It is bread-pakoda.
Stuffed Aloo Bread Pakora Recipe – How to Make Bread Pakora
Stuffed aloo bread pakora is an Indian fritter made with spiced mashed potato stuffing in bread dipped in gram flour and then deep fried in oil. Stuffed aloo bread pakora is a great recipe to serve as starters or tea time snacks.
This pakora tastes good even when it is not hot. The best way to serve this bread pakora is along with coriander chutney, tomato sauce, and some fried green chili.
You can also have these kinds of pakoras along with coriander and mint chutney also known as hari chutney, generally served in restaurants along with starters. Bread pakora is also made without stuffing and I love adding lot’s of garlic to it.
