Bread Pakoda

In my kitchen pantry there was bread and I wanted to make use of this before it turns bad. Thought of making Bread Pakoda. This is a very common indian snack. Only the stuffing mixture varies. I had posted Bread Bonda for which there was Potato Filling. For this dish I used Spinach and Corn Kernals. This is made as little bites. Should be very tasty with Chutney or Chilli sauce. One can add cheese to the filling to make it interesting for kids.
