This is a very simple and tasty tea time snack.
  White bread slices 3
  Gram flour 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Besan)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Tomatoes 1 , finely chopped
  Green peas 1⁄4
  Cilantro sprigs 3 , finely chopped
  Methi sprigs 3 , finely chopped (Fenugreek)
  Coriander powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Garam masala powder 1⁄4
  Salt To Taste
  Chilly powder To Taste

Lightly toast the Bread slices in a toaster or on stove. Cut them diagonally into halves so that each slice gives you two triangle pieces.

Make a batter with Besan and water (the batter should not be too thin, it should be slightly thick so that it can coat the bread slices well) Add finely chopped tomatoes, cilantro, fenugreek and green peas. Mix well. Also add coriander powder, garam masala powder, salt and chilly powder.

Dip one side of a bread piece into the batter. Make sure the batter along with other ingredients has coated the bread slice well. Overturn and dip the other side of the bread slice.

Spray some non-stick cooking spray/ any oil onto a shallow non-stick pan. Pan fry the bread slice each side until it has browned well. Repeat procedure with other slices.

Place on an absorbing sheet to absorb any excessive oil.

Serve as snack with some chai!

You can use kasuri methi instead of fresh methi,that will give a kick and good flavour .

If Kasoori Methi is dried fenugreek leaves..then that is exactly what I use. Most of the times I do not keep fresh methi at home, instead get a bunch, dry the leaves and store them in air-tight containers. I do it for convenience sake and I have methi whenever I need but other than that am not aware if the dried leaves will further enhance the taste or not.

I always liked bread pakora, and with methi, its taste simply enhanced. It is a very simple and mouth watering dish.
