Bread Roll

Kids make us very innovative in the kitchen and here is one of my creations for their lunch boxes.You can substitute the potato stuffing with any of your kids favorite. You can either bake it or shallow fry it.


1. Potatoes - 1 medium boiled and mashed
2. Peas - 1/2 cup
3. Onion - 1/2 finely chopped
4. Green chilly - 1 finely chopped
5. Oil - 1 teaspoon
6. Salt - as needed
7. Bread - 2 slices
8. Butter - 1 tablespoon at room temperature


In a hot pan, add oil, saute the onions till soft. Add the green chilli, mashed potato and peas. Add a little salt and saute till the peas gets cooked. Keep it aside.
Remove the edges of the bread. Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread a little bit. Wrap it in a wet kitchen towel for 5 to 10 minutes. Place a spoon full of the potato masala at one side of the bread. Roll it tight. Seal the edge by applying some water. Again wrap it with a wet kitchen towel. This process of wrapping the bread in a wet kitchen towel will keep the bread nice and soft without letting it dry while baking.
Preheat the oven to 400F. Unwrap the bread rolls. Apply butter on all sides of the roll. Place it in a greased baking sheet and bake for 10 to 20 minutes. You can also shallow fry the rolls till they turn golden brown.

Serve it with ketchup.
