Bread Roll

Rains, saturday breakfast, an early morning hike, fried food cravings – ain’t these enough to create a beautiful scene for the yummy bread rolls? Exactly how we cheated today, well – we did earn some bit of it after getting ourselves out of our beds to go for a lovely early morning hike today.

So here we go with these amazingly yum bread rolls!

Ingredients: (yields 5-6 pieces)

  • 2 big boiled potatoes
  • Oil
  • Cumin seeds
  • 1-1.5 chopped green chilies
  • 1 tsp red chili
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ¾ tsp dry mango powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Bread slices
  • Cilantro
  • Bread crumbs

Procedure:

  • In a pan, heat 1 tbsp oil and add cumin seeds
  • When it starts spluttering, sautee garlic until golden brown and then add onion and green chilies
  • Cook for 4-5 min and then add coarsely mashed fully-boiled potato
  • Add all the spices to it
  • Mix well and add chopped cilantro in it
  • Let the filling mix cool down to room temperature
  • Make oval balls of this potato mix
  • Take bread pieces with corners chopped out
  • Dip each slice into water
  • Press the slice gently so the water squeezes out and the bread softens
  • Put the filling inside and close the bread to form another oval shape
  • If needed, gently sprinkle some bread crumbs on it and deep fry these on medium flame
  • Serve with dips of choice – ideal ones are chilli sauce, tomato sauce, green mint chutney

Note: You can always tweak the filling to add some cheese or the spice or flavour of the potato filling in it!
