Add chopped onion and saute for a minute.
Then add green chili and fry them for few seconds.

Stir fry for one or two minutes. Don’t cook too much. The vegetables should have a slight crunch.

other preparations :
Prepare the maida paste by mixing maida and water.
Make a fine paste slurry and the paste should not be too runny not too thick. It should be of the right consistency to coat the bites.
Transfer the bread crumbs into a plate. Keep aside.
making bread bites :
Take a bread slice and trim the edges. You can use bread sides to prepare breadcrumbs.
With the help of rolling pin, roll the bread thinly without applying much pressure.
Prepare the second bread of slice like this.
Then place the prepared stuffing over one of the bread slice. The stuffing should be on the higher side so make a thick layer.
Cover on top with the slice of bread and press it gently.
Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the bread slice into pieces to make bites. You can make four pieces, six pieces or as much you want. Here I have made nine pieces.
Bread bites is ready.
Now assemble bread bites, maida paste and breadcrumbs.
Take one piece to dip the bites into the maida batter to coat them well.
Immediately place it on the breadcrumbs to mix well so that the breadcrumbs form a nice layer around the bread bite.
Make all the bread bites seasoned this way and this makes them ready to fry. Coat all the bites with bread crumbs properly so that they don’t come out while frying.
frying the bread bites :
Place a frying pan and pour the oil to fry the bites. Heat the oil medium hot.
Add these bites one by one into the pan and fry them with low medium flame. Do not overload the pan.
Deep-fry for two to three minutes on low medium heat, or until crisp and golden brown, turning occasionally.
Drain on paper towel and repeat the procedure to fry one more batch.
Serve these bread bites hot with tomato ketchup and green chutney.
