Veggie Bread Rolls




I have a confession to make..i love all food deep-fried..and am certain there are many who are the same. So, i love the samosas,bajjis,bondas...but i love these veggie bread rolls the best. I think it is because, you have to make these at home to eat them..i have never seen them sold anywhere. I remember as a child asking ..actually begging my amma to make these..as she really did not like to make too many deep fried snacks. I think her her reluctance to make any deep fried food was my basic lack of portion control..which sadly has continued to my adulthood too ;)..anyway i digress..i would basically eat 4 to 5 of these and feel miserable the rest of the evening..but would be ready to eat thair-chadam (curd rice) at dinner time ;) he he. She would make 2 types of filling, one was with potatoes and peas the other was tomato and onion. They both are equally delicious and the last time i went home..amma made these and guess what....i overate again ;)

I made the potato peas bread-roll..here is the recipe. I of-course added garlic, which was a complete no-no in my house..so feel free to add in any veggie you want..

Ingredients:

Bread - 10 slices
Potatoes - 3 medium (boiled and mashed smooth)
Peas - 1 cup (boiled and mashed roughly)
Onion - 1/4 cup ( finely diced)
Green Chilly - 1 (finely chopped)
Garlic - 1 (finely chopped)
Cilantro - 2 tbls (finely chopped)
Ajwain -1/2 tsp.
Red Chilly Powder - 1/2 tsp.
Salt - to taste
Water- to dip the bread in
Oil - to deep fry(yep..this is not healthy or as RR would say figure friendly...bah!)

Method:

1. Mix in all the ingredients except the bread and oil and keep aside.

2. Heat the oil in a pan to deep fry.

3. In a wide bowl, take some water..dip a slice of bread in it for a second, take it out and squeeze all the water..taking care the bread does not lose the shape.

4. Add some of the vegetable filling in the middle of the squeezed out bread and close the edges. Form the bread into an oblong shape making sure the bread is well sealed.

5. Now drop this in the hot oil very gently and deep fry for a few minutes.

6. Eat these when they are hot....and yeah yeah..go ahead and overeat ;)

Notes:

1. Do not get greedy and put too much of filling inside.

2. Preshape the filling in oblongs, so that they fit in the bread easily.

3. Make two at a time and deep fry immidiately, you cannot preform all the bread ahead with filling and fry later,as they will get soggy......water, bread...get it ;)

TBC said...

Rajitha,
That looks great:-)Have not tried stuffing bread with potatoes & peas.
I too love deep-fried things but rarely make it:-(
I too am a garlic lover & add it in almost everything that doesn't even require it:-)

Mansi Desai said...

Simple recipe and looks delicious! No second guesses as to why you overeat this one all the time...pic says it all! :)

Cynthia said...

Rajitha honey, I think that if all of us are honest, we'd have to admit that we have a weakness for deep-fried foods :D

Nabeela said...

That's my fear with deep fried food too....over-eating and then feeling guilty! :)
And by the way, thanks for dropping by my blog. So many new blogs have cropped up since I took my hiatus that's its difficult to keep track of them. Anyway, my point is, welcome to the blogosphere :)

Hi Rajitha,

i have never heard of deepfried bread rolls. Very interesting. Your post is very funny, too... we all over eat ourselves occasionally. It only proves what a great cook you are ;-)

Vani said...

Looks yum, Rajitha! I think fried foods are a universal favorite. I over-indulge too and then feel guilty! Over-indulging part, I don;t mind but it's the guilt that gets to me! Gotta work on that:)

Pooja V said...

ushaprashanth said...

Happy cook said...

Same here i love fried food. And after eating them in excess fell guilty.
If i get my hands on the veggie roll i would eat few of them yum

Laavanya said...

These look so good that it would actually be a sin to not overeat I think! :) I've had something similar just once, loooong back but I remember loving it. I've been trying very hard to stay away from deep fried food for more than a month now. During the Puri marathon, it was almost impossible to not give in. Here you are tempting me again.

Sig said...

My name is sig, and I am a deepfriedfoodoholic.... :)
I can sit and eat tons of deep fried stuff without giving a second thought to portion control... yeah, as you said I feel miserable after that, but its all worth it :)... never had these fried bread rolls though... looks super yummy...

Rajitha said...

raaga- the pleasure is all mine....love ur blog too..u know that right..

Shella said...

Raji the best way to control fried food is make less - eat less. That works perfectly. This way you have the satisfaction of making it & eating it, but dont get much to eat. Give me the recipe for the tomato / onion filling. Have never tried that in bread roll.
