Bread rolls with Lentils Batter . IMG_2238Crispy Inside and Outside. WITHOUT DEEP FRYING.

                                   Bread rolls stuffed with Vegetable filling are great as an appetizer or finger food or Breakfast or Kids Lunch Box . These Bread rolls are Quick fix if you have Bread, Dosa Batter or CHICKPEA FLOUR and RICE FLOUR BATTER and vegetable filling. For little Sourness in the filling Squeeze Juice of lime after switching of the stove. Cool the filling and make the rolls so it will be easy to stuff the bread and seal it by wetting your fingers . Toasting Bread is Optional . I used Whole Grain Bread , you can use Bread of your Choice. For Dosa batter follow my recipe for Crispy outer covering . Use a deep Pan for Pan frying on four sides . It won’t take much time to fry . Cook on medium High flame.

                             I always want to try different and less work recipes for weekend Lunch . As I have Bread , Dosa Batter and some Veggies left in the refrigerator thought I will make Bread rolls . Not new recipe . Dip the Bread rolls in Dosa Batter or CHICKPEA and RICEFLOUR BATTER and Pan fry instead of Deep frying. Yes it worked and a  hit recipe with my Kids . Make over for Old recipe . They are Crispy from Outside as my Dosa’s are crispy with my Dosa Batter , so Why not Bread rolls. Yes the Outer covering is Crispy.

                                    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so as Lunch for Kids. It is easy to Cook Lunch /Dinner .
