Cheesey vegetable pakoda

Bread pakora is favorite tea time snack and also a breakfast recipe of us Indians. It is very easy to make, just dip bread slices in besan or gramflour batter and deep fry them. Bread pakoras are also good option for kids lunch boxes, and for picnic. I had tried to make it another way by stuffing spicy chopped vegetables in it.
