Tirangi Vada - The TriColour Bread Pakodas - make a perfect snack

The name itself tells us what this snack would look like. Yeah it has three colors which look like India's national flag and therefore the name goes as Tirangi Vada. This is a perfect snack on a rainy day with a garama garam chai and when junta is very hungry :). 


Bread loaves
Tomato Ketchup

For Besan Paste:

Gram flour as per need (Besan aata)
Pinch Turmeric powder
Red Chili powder as per taste
Salt as per taste
1 tsp Asafoetida
Oil for frying

For Green Chutney:
Bunch of Coriander
Mint Leaves (pudine ke patte)
Cumin seeds
Green Chilis as required
Salt as per taste
Pinch of sugar


1. In a grinder take all the ingredients listed under Chutney , add little water and grind it to make a Chutney. Adjust pudina, water, salt , chili as per liking and taste. Make this a little pungent in taste.

2. Take a bread slice and spread green chutney over eat. Place another slice on top of it and spread tomato Ketchup on it. now cover this with a third slice.

3. Cut this sandwich into small pieces as you want.

4. Mix Gram flour, salt , red chili powder, turmeric powder and water to make a paste. (Saw way as one makes for Onion pakoras)

5. Heat oil in a skillet (kadai). Take a piece of above bread sandwich , dip it in the besan paste so that there is a thick layer of besan paste on it and deep fry in oil. Fry till it gets a slight brown color.

Serve hot :)
