A mean person said it looks like Chimi's excreta!
But an immediate bite into one and the entire plateful disappeared in a jiffy. That's how much fried snacks are loved. Most times I've seen these bread rolls get made when dinner is of just soup or a sole khichdi. At times these use to be served to the odd guest who dropped by. There are no proportions as what you use to make them are all adorable ingredients and pantry staples. It turns out well anyways.
Do it my way if you want to follow a recipe.
4 boiled potatoes
4 slices of sandwich bread
1/4 cup green peas
1 onion chopped fine
1 teaspoon chat masala
1 green chili chopped fine
1 handful chopped cilantro
salt to taste
In a big bowl put all the ingredients and salt. Mash potatoes and bread to unite them. Knead into a ball. Pinch of small balls and make oblong shapes. Shape all of them. Makes abot 8 rolls. Deep fry in medium hot oil till crisp and golden. Serve with green chutney or tomato sauce.
This is yet another favorite of the potato lovers.
