It was a rainy day and being foodie my husband and I wanted to eat something hot and crispy. Looking around my kitchen, I saw bread over my fridge and decided to prepare Bread Rolls.
Bread roll is an Indian snack which comes in vegetarian criteria. It is really yummy and stomach filling snack which is loved by an every Indian.
It really increases the taste of deep fried snacks when it is raining and Bread Rolls are one of them.
I felt to share the recipe with you all so even you can enjoy when you want to have this mouthwatering snack…
Bread rolls are basically made from Bread and filled with smashed-spicy potatoes and deep fried. So here we go with the recipe:
5 bread slices, (bread should be firm)
3 medium size potatoes boiled peeled and smashed (this will make about 1/4-2 cup mashed potatoes)
1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon mango powder (amchoor)
1/4 teaspoon coriander powder (dhaniya powder)
1/4 teaspoon cumin powder (jeera powder)
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
**If you do not have mango powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and Garam masala so, you can use 1-1/2 teaspoon of Curry Powder
1-1/2 tablespoon Cilantro (hara dhania), finely chopped
1-2 Medium size green chili (hari mirch) minced; adjust to taste
1 teaspoon ginger (adrak),finely chopped (optional)
Oil to fry
1. Smash the boiled potatoes
2. Add all the spices (chilly powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, or as mentioned above just curry powder) with salt and Cilantro
3. Taste the mixture; it should be a little spicier than you like, as it will taste milder inside the bread. Set this aside
1. Take a flat open bowl filled with water.
2. Taking one bread slice at a time; first, soak the one side of a bread slice in water; carefully press it between your palms to squeeze out all water. Check if the bread is still dry, take a little amount of water in your hand and dab it on bread.
This makes the bread moist.
**This can be tricky, be careful not to squeeze very hard, else the slice will break, but squeeze enough to remove all water.
3. Keeping the bread in one palm, put some of the potato mixture in the center of the bread and fold it to form an oval ball.
4. Before frying, let them sit for about 3-5 minutes. (This will evaporate some of the water from the bread so that it absorbs less oil while frying; also making the bread rolls crisper).
5. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Drop the rolls slowly into it, taking care not to overlap them.
6. Fry the bread rolls until they are golden brown, turning occasionally. This should take about two to three minutes. Take them out over a paper towel.
Serve them hot with green cilantro chutney (Hara Dhaniya Chutney) or you can serve with just tomato ketchup/sauce.
I take even drinks with this like Tea or any Soft drink.
Thanks for reading.. make sure to try this next time when it rains… 🙂
