Instructions for Bread Roll
- Rinse potatoes very well in water. Then place them in a pressure cooker. Add water just about covering the potatoes. Also, add ½ teaspoon salt.
- Pressure cook the potatoes for 5 to 6 whistles on medium to medium-high heat. When the pressure settles down on its own, then only open the lid.
- Drain all the water and set the potatoes aside.
- Let them cool for a while at room temperature. Peel the potatoes and transfer them to a large bowl and Mash them.
- Add finely chopped onion, finely chopped coriander leaves, and finely chopped green chili.
- Then add red chilli powder, cumin-coriander powder, and dry mango powder (amchur powder).
- Add salt, just taste the boiled potatoes for salt and add as required.
- Stir and mix very well. Check the taste and add more spice powders, salt and dry mango powder if required.
- Take the bread slices on the chopping board and cut the sides using a knife of each slice.
- Take ⅓ cup water on a plate or a bowl. Dip one bread slice in the water completely for a second and quickly remove it.
- Press the bread between your palms so that the excess water is drained.
- Just dip the slice to lightly moisten the bread, do not dip it completely as it will break the slice while removing the water, and also it will absorb more oil while deep frying.
- Now place the bread on a tray or board or plate.
- Now take a small portion of the stuffing mixture and place it in the center lengthwise diagonally
- Alternatively, you can make small cylindrical shape rolls of the stuffing mixture and place one roll inside.
- Gently roll the bread and join the edges. Press the edges and seal them.
- Then cover it from the remaining two sides and give it a cylindrical shape.
- You should get a neat roll. Also, there should not be any uncovered potato filling as when frying they will leak out in the oil.
- Make the remaining bread rolls in a similar way.
- Once all the rolls are ready, then heat enough oil in a kadhai or deep pan.
- Make sure that the oil is hot enough, otherwise, the rolls will absorb more oil while frying.
- Gently, slide in the rolls and fry them until golden and crisp.
- Then turn over each bread roll carefully using a slotted spoon.
- Continue to fry and turn over as required for uniform frying.
- Remove them using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a plate lined with a paper towel.
- Repeat the same for all the rolls.
- Crisp and tasty stuffed bread rolls are ready to serve with chutney or ketchup.
Serve the bread roll hot or warm with your favorite accompaniment like tomato sauce or green chutney or mint chutney or coriander chutney. They taste great with tomato ketchup and green chutney.
