Pan Fried Peanut & Paneer Stuffed Bread Pakoras

Sometimes i had to break my head to finish up leftover slices of stale breads, we usually have for breakfast.Seriously i got bored of using those bread slices for making vadas or cutlets, after trying out Bread pakoras for bloghop wednesdays i can feed easily everyone at home those stale bread slices as this kind of no fry bread pakoras.

This time for a change i prepared a simple,quick and nutty filling with grated paneer, coarsely grounded roasted peanuts spiced with chilly powder, kasuri methi,cumin powder and salt. You doesnt need to cook this filling and you can use it directly as stuffing in your bread pakoras. We just loved this yummy pakoras and its our recent family favourite. Serve this pan fried bread pakoras with a cup of tea or coffee anytime of the day, am damn sure you will definitely have a super satisfying,delicious and definitely a guilt free snacks. You can even serve this pakoras as a starter for a party menu, you have numerous choice to enjoy this yummy pakoras.Check out the other marathoners running blogging marathon here.Sending to Amina's Guest Quest.

1/2cup Paneer (grated)
1/4cup Roasted peanuts
1/2tsp Roasted cumin powder
1/4tsp Red chilly powder
Salt
1/2tsp Kasuri methi leaves(crushed)

Take grated paneer,coarsely grounded peanuts, cumin powder chilly powder, salt and kasuri methi leaves in a bowl, mix everything well and keep aside.

For Pakoras:
4nos Wheat Bread slices
1/2cup Chickpeas/Besan flour
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
Salt
2tbsp Yogurt
Water

Take the besan flour red chilly powder, salt,yogurt in a bowl,add gradually the water to turn as a mildly thick paste..

Cut the bread slices diagonally and spread already prepared paneer-peanut filling and close it with an another bread slice.

I remember eating the deep fried version many years ago at a friend's birthday but somehow the idea of deep frying bread was not appealing - will try this pan fried version.
