Tea-Time Snacks-1:Bread Rolls:


  1. Potatoes: 1/2 Kg (5-6 medium sized)
  2. Slice Bread: 1 Packet
  3. Green Chillies
  4. Rai (Mustard seeds)
  5. Jeera(Cumin)
  6. Hing (Asafoetida)
  7. Haldi(Turmeric Powder)
  8. Lemon
  9. Sugar (To taste)
  10. Salt (To Taste)
  11. Corriander Leaves


  1. Boil the potatoes.
  2. After boiling and having them cooled a bit, peel of the skin and smash the potatoes.
  3. In a separate small vessel do the seasoning:
    Add 1 -1.5 table spoon of oil.
    Heat the oil on mild flame
    Then add 1 – 1.5 tea-spoon of Rai
    Then add 1 – 1.5 tea-spoon of Jeera
    Then add 0.5 tea-spoon of Hing
    Then add 0.5 tea-spoon of Haldi
    Then add finely chopped Green Chillies (3-4 mild spicy ones, medium-size should suffice
  4. Add this seasoning to the smashed potatoes
  5. Add juice of half a lemon
  6. Add 1 table spoon of sugar( and more or less as per your taste)
  7. Add Salt as per taste( 1 tea-spoon should suffice)
  8. Add finely chopped coriander leaves
  9. Mix the entire mixture properly and taste it to confirm salt/lemon/sugar
  10. Now take a slice of bread and dip it gently in water from both sides
  11. Do not cut the sides of the slice bread, they hold the entire roll together.
  12. Squeeze the bread to let out the water, do this gently or the bread will break.
  13. Add the potato filling in the bread and turn the bread into an elongated roll-shape or round shape.
  14. Deep fry the roll in the oil.
  15. Once the bread turns slightly brown, the roll is ready to be taken out and served
  16. Serve it with tomato ketchup or hot and sweet chilly sauce.

Eat it at tea-coffee time and make sure the tea/coffee is served hot. I think this potato filling should suffice for 10-12 bread rolls. You can use the same mixture with a little modifications to make the famous Mumbai Vada Pav. About the coating preparation will write about it tomorrow.
