Now, remove the sides of the bread with the help of a knife. Dip the bread in the water from 1 side for less than a second and squeeze off the excess water with the help of your palms.

(Note: You can skip removing the bread slice as well, it is optional. Sometimes I don’t remove the sides and it tastes the same but more crispy.)

Place a small portion of the potato mixture in the center of the bread and shape it into a ball.

At this stage if you want you can store the bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator overnight or for 2 days.

If not then fry it in hot oil until both sides are golden brown, transfer the fried and crispy bread roll to the oil-absorbent paper to remove excess oil.

Serve it hot with coriander chutney or tomato ketchup and with a cold drink or tea.

Tips for the perfect Indian bread roll

  • You can add grated beetroot, boiled sweet corn, or any other veggies of your choice for stuffing.
  • Instead of white bread, you can also use brown bread but the taste will be different if compared to white bread.
  • Make sure to squeeze the water from the bread slice entirely. Otherwise, it will absorb the oil while frying.
  • Don’t dip the bread in water for more than a second, the more time the bread will be in the water, the more you will be unable to squeeze the water and it will break.
  • Always fry the bread roll in the hot oil, otherwise, it will absorb the oil and will become soggy.
  • Serve it immediately and enjoy. 🙂
