In a bowl, add the gram flour, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander leaves, carom seeds and salt.
Add water gradually and whisk the ingredients to make a smooth, lump-free batter. The consistency of the batter should be medium, neither too thick nor too thin.
Heat oil in a deep pan or kadai.
Take a bread slice, dip it into the gram flour batter, making sure it's evenly coated from all the sides.
Carefully place this coated bread slice into the hot oil.
Fry the bread slice on medium heat until it turns golden and crispy.
Drain it on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Repeat the same process for all the bread slices.
Serve the bread pakoras hot with ketchup or green chutney.
