A Wholesome and Yummy After-School (or Anytime) Snack

We moms often ponder what to prepare for our children's evening snack. We want it to be both healthy and delicious. Potato rolls are one such snack that can please anyone, both kids and elders. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Serve these rolls with tomato sauce and green chutney. Or, if you are not in the mood to make green chutney, tomato sauce by itself is a sufficient accompaniment.

Let me show you how to make potato rolls.

Instructions

  1. Boil the potatoes. Peel them. Mash the potatoes until they are small chunks. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep bottomed pan. Throw in cumin seeds and saunf (aniseed). Saute until they crackle.
  3. Add finely chopped onions and green chilies. Saute until onions turn pinkish.
  4. Add mashed potatoes, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, coriander powder, amchur powder, salt, and a bit of sugar. Mix well. Saute the mixture for a minute. This forms the stuffing. Turn off heat.
  5. Transfer the stuffing to a plate. Let it cool completely.
  6. In the meanwhile, remove the dark brown crusts from the bread slices. Set aside.
  7. Divide the stuffing into many lemon-sized portions. Take a portion in your palm and make an oval-shaped stuffing. Refer to the photo. Keep ready all the oval-shaped stuffing.
  8. Take a bread slice. Dip it in water and quickly take out. Place it between your palms and softly press and squeeze the water.
  9. Now, you have a wet, thin bread slice on your palm. Place an oval-shaped unit of stuffing diagonally in the center. Join the opposite sides of the bread.
  10. Gently press the bread along with the stuffing, so that the bread covers the stuffing completely.
  11. Heat oil for deep-frying. Gently slide 3-4 rolls into the hot oil. Let the heat be medium-high. Turn the rolls occasionally to ensure uniform cooking on all sides.
  12. Once they are light brown, remove them on an absorbent paper towel. The paper absorbs the excess oil from the rolls.
  13. Repeat the same to make all rolls. Now, soft and crunchy potato rolls are ready to serve!
  14. Serve two of them on a plate with tomato sauce and green chutney. Enjoy the taste! You can eat them as they are, even without a side dish. They are extremely delicious!

Welcome. Best of luck with your cooking!

Good to know that! Thanks a lot, Shaila.

Thanks for your appreciation. Adding amchur powder gives a bit sourness to the dough, and it balances with the taste of the other ingredients. But, skipping amchur powder will not make a big difference in taste. You can try making it without amchur powder.

This recipe looks very delicious! My husband would love eating this for snacking while watching TV. I wonder if I can skip amchur powder/dry mango powder in the mixture? Thanks for sharing!
