  1. Indian snacks like samosa and bread pakora are my fav. The rainy evenings make these all the more delicious. Its been a long time since I have not had these, shall make it soon 🙂


  2. The bread pakoras look so inviting, Shail. We grew up eating them at home. Only in the north, it is street food. I have eaten in many Gurudwaras also. They taste good however they are made. My sister used to stuff them with potatoes but I found them way too heavy. Simple bread dipped in besan is perfect. I add garlic but never ginger. Will try it with ginger too 🙂


  3. One of my fav. I used to make it home but very rarely due to oil and all you know na diet natak😁. Shezwan chutney in bread pakoda is new for me. I will try with this new flavors.


  4. Your recipe photos are always very tempting. We usually use green chutney in our bread pakodas. I will try using Schezwan chutney next time. Thank you for sharing the recipe.


  5. That looks delish, Shail. It is comfort food. Never tried adding Shezwan chutney to the potatoes, though. I can just imagine the flavors.


  6. Have bookmarked this recipe for a rainy day because it’s the perfect rainy day snack! Looks so mouth watering


  7. my mouth is watering Shail🥲… looks so yummy. I like the schezwan sauce twist… is it always there or is it your creativity?
