Aloo Bread Toast

Today’s dish is one of my all time favorite street food.   This Hyderabadi street food  is a crunchy, sweet and little spicy snack found at almost all the street side chaat bandars. Potato mixture is applied over bread and then dipped in cornflour batter then deep fried till crisp. If you do not wish to deep fry , the toast can be even pan fried with very little oil. This is a great evening snack or a perfect snack for any kind of  parties. 

Aloo bread toast goes to week 3 day 2 of Blogging Marathon 108 under the theme " Street Food Special ".
