About Bread Roll

This Indian snack recipe of bread roll has a crispy outside texture encased with a tangy savory potato stuffing inside. The potato stuffing is filled inside a bread slice, rolled and then deep fried.

If deep frying is not your thing, then you can opt to bake or air fry them. They will still be delicious if not very crispy like the deep fried bread roll.

In case you might be interested in the baked version, then do check this recipe of Bread Cheese Roll. Another similar baked recipe you can check is – Bread Paneer Roll.

These bread rolls are a favorite at home. When I make the stuffing, I usually use the same potato stuffing that I use for the Aloo Paratha.

We prefer a little sourness in the potato stuffing, so I add either dry mango powder or anardana powder (dry pomegranate powder).

We also collectively prefer the taste of anardana in potato stuffings for Samosa, Aloo Tikki, paratha rather than dry mango powder. 

So when I have anardana powder, I add it to the potato filling or else I use dry mango powder. You can use either. Both work well in the recipe.

You can try both and choose what you or your family likes the best or what is available in your kitchen.

To make the bread roll, I have used brown bread. You can even use whole wheat bread, brown bread or even white bread. Even a bread two to three days old works well.

The first time I had these bread roll were in my school canteen. A middle aged lady in her 40’s whom everybody used to call as aunty would make these and get them during the break hour.

She would carry them in large steel jars (dabbas) and they would be still warm when she would serve them to us. They were served with a white peas curry which would be hot enough with the warm rolls. I seriously got addicted to this pairing of the bread roll with the peas curry.

I would often make a beeline to have the bread roll as they would sell like hot cakes. She would also get idli and vada with coconut chutney. An option I had no choice to eat when the bread roll would get over.

Then I had no clue how these rolls were made. So when we were shown the method to make these rolls in our cooking school, that was the time when I finally got to know them.

I clearly got the connection. These were the same roll that aunty used to make. So long to know the how to aspect of making these bread rolls.

Step-by-Step Guide

How to make Bread Roll

Making Potato Stuffing

1. Rinse 3 to 4 large potatoes or 425 grams potatoes very well in water. Then place them in a 3 litre stovetop pressure cooker. Add water just about covering the potatoes. Also add ½ teaspoon salt.

Pressure cook the potatoes for 5 to 6 whistles on medium to medium-high heat. When the pressure settles down on its own, then only open the lid.

Then check the potatoes with a knife, and it should slide easily. Drain all the water and set the potatoes aside. Let them become warm or cool at room temperature.

You can opt to steam or cook the potatoes in a pan or in the Instant Pot adding water as needed.

2. When the potatoes become warm then peel and grate them in a bowl. You can even mash them with a potato masher or a fork.

  • ¼ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper powder (or crushed black pepper)
  • ¼ teaspoon garam masala powder (or add as required)
  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon dry mango powder or add as required. You can add ½ to 1 teaspoon lemon juice or ½ to 1 teaspoon dry pomegranate seeds powder instead of dry mango powder.

Also add salt as per taste.

6. Take a portion of the mixture and make small to medium rolls of potato filling. The size of the rolls will depend on the size of the bread.

Preparing Bread Slices

7. Take the bread slices on the chopping board and carefully slice off the side crusts with a knife.

8. Take ⅓ cup water on a plate or a bowl. Dip one bread slice in the water completely.

9. Just keep the bread in water and remove it after 1 to 2 seconds. Just let the bread absorb the water. It should get damp but not overly. Otherwise the bread slice breaks.

The idea is to make the bread moist enough so that it becomes pretty flexible which would make the rolling and shaping easier.

10. Press the bread between your palms so that the excess water is drained.

11. Make sure the bread stays intact and does not break. So press gently.

15. Press the edges and seal them. Also press the top and bottom parts and seal them.

16. You should get a neat roll. Also there should not be any uncovered potato filling as when frying they will leak out in the oil.

If there are any uncovered edges, then just cover with a piece of soaked and drained bread and press it to get an even cover.

Forming the bread roll is not so easy part for beginners and with practice you will find it easy.

17. Shape and make the rolls this way with the remaining bread slices.

Frying Bread Roll

18. Heat any neutral flavored oil for deep frying or shallow frying the bread rolls in a kadai (wok) or pan.

When the oil becomes medium hot, then add the rolls gently and carefully to the oil. Do not overcrowd the kadai. Add 3 to 4 rolls depending on the size of the kadai.

The oil has to be moderately hot. If the oil is not hot enough, the moist bread will absorb a lot of oil.

If the oil is very hot, the bread will brown quickly and unevenly with uncooked insides. So regulate the heat as needed.

19. Fry the bread roll till they become crisp and light golden in color.
