Stuffed Bread Rolls

These bread rolls were one of the hit snacks my mom made when we were little. Me & my Sis would wait for an opportunity for my mom to make these for us. She deep fries them which gives even golden color to these rolls and they taste even better & yummier but they are too greasy so I decided to bake it in the oven. It is also another variation of a toasted sandwich unlike the square or triangle. Kids are probably bored so they need some oval sandwiches which taste different, look different.

Any leftover dry potato vegetable, paneer, mince is fine. I prefer to make the stuffing out of mince.


1 pack of mince meat washed and drained
1 big Onion chopped fine
1 tsp chopped green chillies
1 tsp of chopped ginger
¼ tsp of pepper powder
½ bunch of coriander leaves (chopped fine)
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp vinegar
2-3 Tbsp Oil
1 tsp salt

Take oil in a medium pan, once hot put the chopped onion fry until it browns then add the green chilies, ginger. Once it is slightly brown add turmeric powder, pepper powder & the vinegar. Mix it well.

Now add the mince stir well , add 1 tsp of salt or as per your taste, add the coriander leaves and keep it on slow flame covered for 15 minutes until the mince is cooked and dry. Leave the mixture to cool.


Take a slice of bread apply butter on one side, dip the other side in water, remove it at once (or else the bread will get too soggy) immediately press it hard in between your palms to squeeze out the water. Now take 1 Tbsp full of mince filling and put it in the centre of the bread and pull the bread from all side to form like an oval roll. Make as many rolls you wish, now arrange them on a greased tray and put it in a preheated oven @ 200 deg C for 20 minutes until they are nicely browned. You may light the top flame for 2-3 minutes to give that beautiful brown color. Serve it with any chutney, ketchup, yoghurt or just eat it plain. We couldn’t wait to relish it as it is. If you are not worried about putting on those few extra calories then I suggest you deep fry them until golden brown and ENJOY.
