Bread pakoda is one of our favorite Sunday breakfast recipe. Especially when it rains and we want to indulge in some fried snack. This is a very common snack across Mumbai and is made in two ways – plain or stuffed.
I like the bread pakoda plain and bite sized. Sharing with you my recipe of the same here.
