  1. I am drooling πŸ™‚ The first time I had bread pakoras was when I went to stay with my daughter in Bangalore when she was in college. Her friend’s mum made them for tea and I loved them.At that time I couldn’t figure out how someone would be able to make pakoras with bread till they appeared garam garam from the kitchen. I love them.
