Step 1.

Put the potatoes in a pressure cooker with two cups of water and washed potatoes close the lid. On high flame the moment full pressure is formed , reduce the heat to low flame for 4-5 minutes. Switch off the stove, let the pressure cooker cool to room temperature. Open the lid, take out the potatoes peel and mash in a bowl and keep aside.

Step 2.

When the cumin seed starts to crack, add the mashed potatoes, grated Paneer/cottage cheese and all the spices like chili powder, mango powder, salt, black pepper powder, cilantro and stir-fry for a minute, mix the spices well. Turn off the heat. When cool, take small portions of the filling and make rolls of filling and keep aside.

Step 3.

Take a bowl with water to wet the bread. Take a slice of bread, trim the edges of the bread slices and dampen it with water, place the slice between your palms and press, squeezing out the excess water from the bread. This makes the bread moist for rolling in the filling.

Step 4.

Take each filling roll place it on the bread slice, roll the bread gently and close the edges, roll it between your palms to get smooth outer texture, see that filling is not left uncovered anywhere. Prepare all bread rolls similarly and keep aside.

Step 5.

Heat oil in a kadai or wok or frying pan, fry the bread rolls two three at a time till they become light golden brown in color.

Step 6.

Drain the bread rolls on a paper kitchen towel lined plate to remove excess of oil. Serve the crisp bread rolls with coriander or mint chutney.

Note: Do not soak bread slices in water. Just dip the slice and squeeze out the water from the slice thoroughly.
