Spicy hot bread pakoras are great as an appetizer..
Remove the crust from all sides of the bread. Slice the bread into 2 equal parts.
Mix all the dry ingredients: besan, rice flour, cumin, asafoetida and salt.
Add the water slowly to make a smooth batter. (like dosa batter)
Add green chillies and finely chopped cilantro to the above mix. Mix well.
Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat.
Dip the bread slices one at a time and slowly drop into the oil.
Fry the pakoras for 4-5 minutes.
Turn the pakoras occasionally. Fry the pakoras until both sides are golden brown.
