Bread Rolls – an easy snack made by stuffing bread slices with spicy potato masala and then fried to golden and crisp.
Bread rolls is amongst the first few recipes that I learnt when I started cooking. There was a time when I used to make bread rolls very often. But surprisingly, in the last decade or so, I haven’t made these even once. Recently I came across a post on facebook where someone had posted a picture of bread rolls. That’s when I was reminded about bread rolls and decided to make them and also to post the recipe here.
Bread rolls are easy to make, tasty snack where moist bread slices are stuffed with spicy potato masala and are deep fried. The stuffing can be made in multiple ways. The basic stuffing for bread roll is made with boiled potaotes and spices. If you have leftover boiled potato, then these rolls get made within no time. You can even add peas to the boiled potatoes or can even make stuffing with paneer or chicken. Generally white bread slices are used to make bread rolls. However I have used brown bread slices here and have also made the stuffing with potatoes and peas as fresh peas are abundantly available now.
Bread rolls make for a good tea-time snack or as an appetiser. It is also perfect for kid’s snack box. For health conscious folks, these can be air-fried.
