Bread and Cheese Pakoda/Fritters

                                                                I have tried bread pakoda,paneer pakoda etc but some how i felt it was very bland on the inside.Recently my friend Deepa gave this Bread and cheese pakoda recipe to me.We made it  two or three times in parties in our house and it is a big hit!!!!yes it is a really tasty one.The best part is when you are making for parties or large numbers you can prepare the bread and keep it ready in the refrigerator and fry it hot hot when guests come and that is what i did.The cheese in the bajji really melts!!!!!
