Veggies and Cheese Toast Pakora... 

Veggies and Cheese Toast Pakora... 





This is an ideal breakfast or snack for a rainy day with a garam /hot cuppa of Chai /Tea.... Today since it is raining heavily from morning, I am only thinking of pakoras and bhajiyas... Ufffff.... Could not resist my thoughts.. Finally had to make some thing fried.
This is an in between version of French toast and Bread Pakora. I have added vegetables, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese and green chutney for stuffing the bread and the batter is made with egg, baking powder, flour and cornstarch. It is crispy and filling too  with all veggies. It is eaten hot with green chutney and ketchup.
You can add any filling of your choice...
