Bread rolls with potato filling

Bread rolls with potato filling are a very popular snack of north India. Soaked bread slices are filled with spicy potato filling and then deep fried in oil. Potato filling is same as that in samosas and you can add more vegetables like carrot, peas, capsicum according to your taste. These are really easy to make and can be prepared in advance for deep frying later. I made rolls 1 hour in advance kept them covered and deep fried them later.

It’s a perfect appetizer for serving your guests with tea. You can pack it as a picnic snack also. My kids love to take these in their lunch boxes with ketchup. When I was in school one day teachers decided to have a picnic in school and asked the kids to get some snacks from their home. I took these bread rolls and they disappeared so fast that even I did not get a chance to eat them.
