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.

    Hi Nidhi,

    Thanks for a superb site..
    One question…
    Dont these bread rolls become soggy after a while.. I very frequently make these, but after an hour or so they tend to become soggy…

    Thank you

    • Nidhi says:

      Thanks Sayema. Do not cover these when these are hot. And you have to drain water completely from the slices before making them to get crisp roll. Hopefully this will help :-)

    Hi nidhi..
    My kid have just started going to school. I luckily got your site while searching and surfing :) I loved it. If possible please add videos also.
    You have soaked bread to make it roll wont the soaked bread drink more oil while you fry because of water??
    Please keep sharing :)
    It helps a lot for new moms like me 😉

    • Nidhi says:

      Hi Rushi. Thanks for your encouraging words. you have made my day:-)
      we have to soak bread to give it desired shape. After soaking bread we press it between our palms to remove excess water. Without this step we will not b able to give it round shape. As we remove excess water it does not soak much oil while frying. I hope I have cleared your doubt if not please feel free to ask me.

    For filling you can use boiled carrots, corn or peas with potatoes. can also add grated cheddar cheese.
