Baked Bread Rolls Indian Recipe.
Bread rolls is one of the favourite snack of North Indians. It is originally a recipe from the Punjab but now it is made all over the world. Problem with the Bread rolls is that they are very unhealthy because they are deep fried. Bread rolls are easy to make and very crispy and tasty but unfortunately the bread soak up lots of oil. To take care of that problem I came up with the idea of using as little oil as possible. I do agree that baked bread rolls are no match for the fried bread rolls in taste but these taste superb too and they had their own unique taste. The bread rolls taste best with coriander / cilantro chutney but if you don’t have cilantro chutney then you can use tomato ketchup too. Children are very fond of bread rolls because of its unique taste which not only is liked by adults but by children too.
