Baked Bread Rolls Indian Recipe.

Updated on July 13, 2015

Bread Rolls

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.

Ingredients

Makes 10 rolls

1. Potatoes: 500 grams / 18 Oz.

2. Shelled Peas: 150 grams / 5 Oz.

3. Onion: 1 Red finely chopped.

4. White Bread Slices: 10.

5. Green Chillies: 2 deseeded and finely chopped.

6. Ginger Fresh: 2 inch piece grated.

7. Olive oil / Sunflower Oil: 4 Tbsp.

8. Red Chilli Powder: 1 Tsp.

9. Amchoor Powder ( Dried Mango Powder): 1 Tsp.

10. Garam Masala: ½ Tsp.

11. Chaat masala: 1 Tsp.

12. Cliantro / coriander leaves fresh: 4 twigs finely chopped.

13. Salt: To Taste.

14. Water: 1 Litre.

Preparation for the filling

1. Boil the potatoes, peel them and mash them.

2. Keep aside

3. Now take a heavy base pan and heat 1 Tbsp of oil on high.

4. When oil is heated add finely chopped onions, finely chopped green chillies and grated ginger.

10. Add mashed potatoes.

11. Mix well so all ingredients mix well with potatoes.

12. Cook for another couple of minutes and take off from the heat.

13. Set aside and let it cool for half an hour.

14. Now divide this potato mixture in to 10 equal portions.

Method

1. Take an oven / electric tandoor.

2. Cover the trey of the oven with aluminium foil.

3. Grease the foil with 1 ½ Tbsp of oil.

4. Preheat the oven on high for 5 minutes.

5. While the oven is being heated, take the water in a pan and warm it little.

6. Now put a slice of bread in this lukewarm water and immediately take it out.

7. Gently squeeze the water from the bread keeping in mind that bread maintains its shape after squeezing.

8. Now in the centre of slice put one portion of the potato mixture. (See picture).

9. Now wrap the bread ends around the potato mixture in such a way that potato mixture is covered with bread from all side and bread takes shape of a roll (see Picture).

13. Drizzle little oil around the rolls if needed.

14. When roll become golden brown, take them out.

15. Serve hot with coriander / cilantro chutney and tomato ketchup.

Tip:

1. Always use heavy base pan.

2. If you need less rolls then use 250 grams / 9 oz of potatoes.

3. If coriander chutney is not available then they taste good with ketch up only too.

4. Preferred drink with these is hot tea but you can serve it with Coke or Pepsi too.

      I wondering, is it ginger or is it fish? This has some very healthful veggies in it and that makes it all the more enticing. It sounds really delicious and interesting. Voted up, interesting, and useful, pinned to my 'Breads, Muffins, and Sweet Rolls, ' board and shared with followers.

      Thanks Rajan for such a comment and sharing and votes. Of course baking will not give it typical taste of fried bread roll but it is still good.

      Indian Chef, this is a very nice niche that you've selected, introducing Indian foods to readers who are foreign to our cooking. These bread rolls remind me of my childhood when I used to have them very often. Now i rarely have them since they are deep fried but I'll try baking them as you suggest here.

      Thanks for sharing this method. Voted up, useful, interesting and shared.

      Thanks Justmesuzanne, but I think if you made this with regular bread then only it would taste best.

      How interesting! I don't use white bread at all. In fact, I bake my own whole wheat bread, but I'll bet I could make a softer version of it to do this. Voted up and interesting! :)

      I have never heard of these, but it sure sounds good! I like that you tried a healthier way to cook it, because if I were to splurge on something like this, I would not want to try it with much oil. Thanks for sharing this with us! I look forward to trying it at some point.
