Crispy Sandwich Pakoda with Veggie Stuffing

Spicy veggie mix ,stuffed between the soft bread slices, sealed with the batter and fried into crispy fritters. Just the kind of recipe you need for this monsoon season, right?. It is a great snack, and an awesome lunch box recipe for kids too!

The monsoons seem to have finally arrived! And this awesome weather , makes all of us crave for some hot spicy treats! Doesn’t it?

A dear friend has asked for some monsoon recipes. Now , I can’t let my friends down , can I? So let’s give this monsoon season a hot spicy welcome.

These crispy sandwich pakodas are all that you need. Just team it up with hot adrak wali chai ( ginger tea), and you are set for the season.

In this recipe , you can again experiment a lot with the stuffing, depending on your preference , availability of ingredients and the fuss-meter of the kids 😉

For making this pakoda extra crisp, I’ve used gram flour ( besan) and maize flour (makki ka atta), half and half. This invention of mine was a result of a small accident that happened in my kitchen. I had 2 packs of flour in the pantry , and I mistakenly used maize flour instead of gram flour for making the batter. While making the batter , I realized that I had made a blunder.

My MIL came to my rescue ( she always does). She just added some gram flour to the batter , adjusted some seasoning and consistency, and asked me to make the pakoda. It came out to be extremely crispy, and tasted awesome.

That’s the way recipes are invented , right?

Recipe Notes

TIPS

  • You can add the veggies of your choice to the stuffing like sweet corn, capsicum and even paneer.
  • If you don't have maize flour , just make it with gram flour . They would taste equally good.
  • Press the bread sandwich nicely between your palms , before dipping it in the batter. We don’t want the stuffing to come out.
