Potato 2 medium Green Chilies 1 chopped Lemon juice 1 tsp. Salt to taste Cilantro 1 tbsp. finely chopped Dry Mango Powder ½ tsp. Garam Masala ¼ tsp Coriander Powder 1 tsp.
In a mixing bowl, add chickpea flour, cumin seeds, coriander powder, red chili powder, dry mango powder, and Garam masala.
Mix it well and add salt and lemon juice and mix it again.
Add a little water at a time and whisk it and make medium pouring consistency batter. Which will help to coat the bread slices. Add few drops of oil to the batter and mix well. Keep it aside.
Boil, peel and mash the potatoes. Add coriander powder, green chilies, dry mango powder, garam masala, and salt. Mix these well.
Add lemon juice and coriander leaves into the mashed potatoes and mix well and keep aside. Keep the bread on the cutting board and spread potatoes mixture evenly on the bread.

Heat the oil in the kadhai for deep frying. Once oil is enough hot for frying pakoras then dip this stuffed bread sandwich into the gram flour batter.
Coat the bread evenly with batter from both sides. Gently drop this coated bread into the hot oil for deep fry.
Once bottom side of pakora turn red, turn the other side Fry the bread pakoras till they are crisp and turns golden brown from both sides. Once done drain the excess oil using slotted spoon and take them out into the absorbent paper to remove extra oil. Cut the pakora into small pieces for serving.

1. Water quantity depends on the quality of chickpeas flour. Always add water little by little to avoid thin batter.
2. Potatoes should be boiled really well.
3. Always use sandwich bread, not soft bread as they will become soggy when you dip into gram flour batter.
4. I kept my bread slices plain if you want, can apply green chutney on one layer and tamarind chutney on another bread.
