Divide this flour mix in to bowls.

Making Bread Pakoda:
Start adding water little by little in one bowl to make the batter. Mix it for few minutes to full it up.
This should not be very runny but not very thick as well.
Now cut or shape the bread slices as per your choice, square, triangle or rectangle.
Heat oil into a deep Pan/Karahi.
Now coat each piece of bread into the batter.
Fry until golden brown from both sides.

Making Baguni:
Coat the Brinjal roundels into the same bowl, we coat the bread slices.
Fry until golden brown from both sides.

Making Onion Bhaji:
In the second bowl, make thick batter.
Mix in the onion slices, Mix well.
now pinch the batter with your fingers and drop in the karahi.
drop 4-5 at a time, do not overcrowd.
Flip them and Fry until golden brown from both sides.

Serve these Pakoda on breakfast, brunch or as a starter for small get together . I serve variety of Chutnies with this platter.
