Bread Bajji (bread Pakoda)

Different types of pakodas can be made using vegetables such as potato, onion etc. This bread pakoda is a variety pakoda which can be served as a tea-time snack. I had it sometime earlier from my friend's home and thought to try it myself. It can be easily prepared at home and its good when served hot. Just give it a try and you will love this crispy, tasty snack.
