Chicken Bread rolls

An innovative crispy tasty bread rolls made from mashed potatoes,left over bread slices and chicken curry.
Now no need to worry about your leftovers anymore.
These bread rolls are favorite at my home and I usually pair them with the evening chai as a snack served with tomato ketchup. Hope you too will try this at home.
Its very simple and easy to prepare. Watch out this step by step recipe of these yummy chicken bread rolls

Preparation time : 10 mins

Cooking time : 10 mins

Serves : 4

Ingredients:

1/2 cup left over chicken
8 bread slices( I used brown bread, you can use any breads of your choice)
2 medium size potatoes(boiled peeled and mashed)
1 tsp of ginger garlic paste
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soya sauce
1 tablespoon Cilantro (hara dhania), finely chopped
Oil to fry

Directions || to prepare Chicken Bread Rolls

To prepare the filling

Pick up all the chicken pieces from the curry and shred them all.

In a bowl mix all the ingredients shredded chicken,mashed potatoes,ginger garlic paste,red chilli,garam masala,salt,soya sauce,chopped coriander
and knead lightly to form a soft dough.

To prepare the rolls

Trim the edges of the bread slices and set aside.

Fill a small bowl with water to wet the bread.

Dip one side of a slice of the bread lightly in the water. Place the slice between your palms and press, squeezing out the excess water. This makes the bread
moist.
Place the filling in the center of this bread and mold the bread to completely cover it all around, giving an oval shape. Repeat to make all the rolls.

Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium high heat. Drop the rolls slowly into it, taking care not to overlap them.

Fry the bread rolls until they are golden brown, turning occasionally. This should take about two to three minutes. Take them out over a paper towel.

Serve them hot with any chutney or ketchup.
Tips:

Before frying, let the roll sit for about five minutes. This will evaporate some of the water from the bread so that it
absorbs less oil while frying; also making the bread rolls crisper
