Stuffed Bread Rolls – Quick Fix Lunch Box for Kids!

 

Stuffed Breaad Rolls.

Quick fix snacks and lunch options have always been welcome everywhere and my home is no exception. A quick scan of the refrigerator and pantry is almost always the basis for deciding a side dish, a snack or sometimes even lunch options for the kids!  Every time I make a filling for a “roti” it doubles up as a stuffing in a bread or a kati roll. Sprucing up a “filling” with some spice powders almost always makes it for me. A dash of pav bhaaji masala or amchur transforms the original subzi on to a totally new avatar. This is one such idea that was borne out of a lazy monday morning and an idea in the back of my head, from whatever I could remember reading in an old Indian magazine. Its pretty much “do-your-own-thing-from-whats-in-the-pantry”  kind of a filling and it promises to be quick and easy and innovative!!!

 

INGREDIENTS:

4 Slices of Regular White Bread / Whole Wheat Bread.

1 Boiled Potatoe mashed.

Sweet Tamarind Chutney ( Use Ketchup if not available)

2 Slices of American Cheese. (Optionally use  Shredded Paneer / Cheddar Cheese ).

Pinch of salt.

Pinch of Punjabi Chaat Masala.

Cilantro to garnish.

PREPARATION:

  • Add a dash of oil in a kadai and drizzle some jeera. Immediately add the mashed alu and allow to mix well.
  • Smoosh the mix using the back of your ladle to get a smooth mixture. Now add a little salt, chaat masala and garnish with chopped cilantro. Set aside.
  • Slice out the corners from your bread slices and set them aside.
  • With the help of your rolling pin, flatten out each slice , making them stretched, soft and pliable. Sprinkle 2-3 drops of water to help if the bread is not fresh.
  • Now arrange them neatly one after the other.
  • Smear a spoon of sweet tamarind chutney on each of them to serve as a sticky base. I always have them stashed in my refrigerator for a quick dollop.
  • Use tomato ketchup if you run out of the sweet chutney.

  • Dabble the prepared alu stuffing on to the bread slices.
  • Add a lettuce leaf, and then the sliced / shredded cheese on top.
  • Slowly fold it so one edge is over the other and seal.
  • Place a tava on the stove and grease it with butter/ghee.
