Bread Rolls with potato stuffing

I am thinking aloud about old  school days when I could eat bread rolls,samosas,aloo bondas to my hearts content without  having to worry about love handles ( fat  deposit on ones waistline)When ,"calorie count"was an alien concept  and eating more was,"IN" speaking of skinny-The fad was to have some jiggle here and there;) It was considered the sign of prosperity. I remember as kids we would travel to Pune,India to meet up with our aunts & uncles once every year. After the customary greetings with my parents at the railway station,my uncle & aunts would turn to us (me & my siblings)and exclaim in bewilderment," look at you-you look so weak,someone has to just blow in your face & you would fall like a twig" Exasperated we would mutter under our breadth. We dreaded the outcome-Dad would now give us the deworming tablets- arghhh !!! Hopeful that we would get rid of the underlying problem and look more healthy(prosperous) .
That was bygone era, and  here I am-Constantly fighting with the weight :)

Here's to old times sake :)

Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 8

Potato: 2 large Idaho boiled and mashed
Tomato: 1 medium
peas: 2 tbsp
Cilantro: chopped 2 tbsp
green Chilly: 2 chopped
Panch phorun /fennel,fenugreek,mustard,nigella seeds 1 tsp
Salt: 1 tsp
Turmeric: 1/8 tsp
Red Pepper: 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala: 1/4 tsp
Chat Masala: 1 tsp
Anardana powder: 1/4 tsp / dried pomegranate powder
Bread slices: 8
Oil: 2 tbsp
Oil: for deep frying


Take a kadai. Heat 2 tbsp oil,when hot add the panch phorun,when it starts to splutter add chopped tomato and cook till you see oil on the edges. Now add salt turmeric,garam masala,red pepper,chat masala and anardana powder. Cook for couple minutes and add the mashed potato and along with that green chilly and peas. Mix well and let it cool.

Meanwhile take the bread slice,you can remove the edges if you like.Now dip the bread in water and instantly remove it.Press it between the palm of your hands and remove the excess water. Now add a spoonful of potato mix and fold the bread from both ends and cover the mix with the bread.Like this:

Now deep fry these bread rolls in very hot oil till golden brown. Serve with green chutney or tamarind & date chutney :) Enjoy hot !!!

Note: I was running out of cilantro and peas so you will not see nay greens in these bread rolls.

Bread rolls make an excellent evening snack with tea or breakfast .
