Mixed Vegetable Bread Rolls



Ingredients:
Bread Slices 5
Potato 1
Carrot 1 Small
Fresh Peas 2 Tbsps
Green Chiles 1 – 2
Ginger Garlic Paste 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Cilantro few Sprigs
Salt to taste
Bread Crumbs 2 Tbsps
Oil for Deep Frying + quarter tsp
Method of preparation:
Peel and finely chop the carrot.
Remove stems, wash and finely chop the green chiles.
Wash, separate cilantro leaves and finely chop them.
Boil the potato in enough water till it turns soft.
Cool the potato to room temperature and peel the potato.
Roughly chop the boiled potato.
In a sauce pot, add half a cup of water and chopped carrot.
Boil till the carrot turns soft, add the frozen or fresh green peas and remove from heat.
Strain the carrots and peas if necessary and cool them to room temperature.
Heat quarter tsp of oil in a pan, add ginger garlic paste and green chiles.
When raw smell of the ginger garlic paste is gone after a few seconds, remove from heat, cool the mixture a bit and add garam masala to the pot.
In a mixing bowl, add boiled potato, carrot, peas, above spice mixture, cilantro and salt.
Mash the mixture with help of a masher into paste.
Leave some of the peas and carrots pieces intact.
Divide the mixture into around 5 equal portions.
Take a wide bowl full of water.
Chop the edges off of the bread slices.
Damp a muslin cloth and cover one bread slice at a time with the cloth.
Dip the covered bread slice in the water for a second and remove.
Squeeze the bread slice wrapped in muslin clothe between the palms to remove excess water.
Take each portion of the mixed vegetable stuffing and place it on the damp bread slice.
Roll one side of the damp bread slice over the stuffing till it touches the opposite side and pinch with wet fingers to seal the edges.
Repeat the same with remaining bread slices and the stuffing.
Roll each stuffed bread roll in bread crumbs and keep aside.
Heat oil in a small pan on medium heat, slowly place the stuffed bread rolls into hot oil.
Fry the bread rolls on both sides till they turn dark golden brown in color.
Remove the bread rolls onto absorbent paper.
Garnish with cilantro and serve mixed vegetable bread rolls with chili sauce or with ketchup.
