CRISPY BREAD ROLLS INDIAN STYLE
Its Tea time again and I’m pondering over what snack to make for my kids. I thought why not make bread rolls as it’s a really long time I haven’t made them as I am trying to avoid fried foods. But heck its raining isn’t that reason enough to have something fried with a mug of piping hot tea. Bread rolls is a dish that can be made with ingredients at home. So dunk into this crispy and delectable snack. I am sure the kids will enjoy it too.
Slice Bread - 1 Packet
Potatoes - 5-6 medium sized
Green Chillies -2
Ginger paste – 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
Asafetida – a pinch
Cumin powder – 1 tsp
Coriander powder – 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Boil the potatoes. Peel and mash them. In a wok, add one tablespoon of oil. Add the cumin seeds and when they start to fry, add in the ginger and chilly paste, the coriander powder, cumin powder and asafetida. After a minute or two, when you see they are fried well, add in the mashed potatoes and salt as per taste. Mix well. Finally garnish with finely chopped fresh coriander leaves. Mix well. Allow this mix to cool.
Now take a slice of bread and dip it gently in water from both sides
Do not cut the sides of the slice bread, they hold the entire roll together.
Squeeze the bread to let out the water, do this gently or the bread will break.
Add the potato filling in the bread and turn the bread into an elongated roll-shape or round shape.
Deep fry the roll in the hot oil.
Fry until golden brown, remove the bread roll from the hot oil and drain the excess oil on a tissue paper.
Serve hot with green coriander chutney, tomato ketchup / chilly sauce.
