Bread roll recipe – Sinful snack of the weekend

Bread roll recipe – Sinful snack of the weekend

If you attended school in the 90s in India, bread rolls would have been a staple of any school canteen. I remember my kid’s schooldays, she would always insist on having this. She used to love bread rolls so much that I got worried about her getting sick from eating outside food. So I started making them at home. We as a household over a period of time got pretty good at making them. So here is our bread roll recipe.

Today i am going to show how how to cook up a tasty and indulgent snack in minutes from simple ingredients you have in your kitchen. It does not matter which culture you belong to, this is one is so sinful that it will resonate with most !

While it’s an easy recipe to cook, let me warn you. This is a recipe for the taste buds. It’s very high in calories. It’s a great lazy saturday or sunday evening snack. It goes well with drinks and can be an occasional snack for kids.

So let’s get this sinful treat made.

Tips

Methods like baking and air frying can be done to reduce the calorie count, however they don’t work very well with this recipe. So even though i am all for healthy recipes for this one i will recommend deep frying.

While this is a vegan perpetration where i have made a potato based filling, you can also add green veggies or tofu into the filling.

Its best to use white bread. You can also use wheat bread as i have used. However, wheat bread does not help with making perfect oval shapes. Multi Grain bread is completely out of the question for this recipe.

In case your diet is non-vegan you can use cottage cheese (paneer), grated meat. In case of eggs you can mash the boiled eggs in with the potatoes.
