Bread Rolls/cutlets......step-by-step.

We always observe Lent ....and abstain from meat and fish till Easter...for full 50 you will see more of vegetarian cooking here till Easter.

Amma used to prepare these bread rolls as an easy snack....I really don't know whether to call it rolls or cutlets.....all you need is some bread slices, some filling, little milk, and oil for frying...since it is Lent I prepared a vegetable filling which is same as my vegetable can even fill it with beef or chicken.

One packet bread.
About 1/2 cup milk.
Any vegetable filling.
Oil to deep fry.

1. Prepare a filling with potatoes or see my vegetable cutlets I just fried some onions with ginger and green chillies...added garam masala, pepper powder, vinegar and salt to it....then mixed it well with mashed potatoes and carrots.

2. Take a flat plate and pour little cold milk preferably from the fridge into it and dip the bread (both sides) in the don't have to trim the bread sides.

3. Gently press with your fingers to squeeze out the milk

4. Put a teaspoon of the filling in the bread.

5. Now close the bread gently.

5. But tightly and firmly shape into an oval shaped ball....or round shape...amma always used to make into oval I sticked on to that....if there are cracks just simply press them and again shape them.

6. Likewise make rolls the similar way with as much as bread slices you want or till the filling finishes. Let it sit on a plate for a few that the bread absorbs all the excess moisture. The brown color are the browned sides of the does not matter.....we are now going to deep fry them......(I hate wasting the brown sides).

7. Heat oil in a frying pan....and deep fry them.

8. When it is browned on all sides......strain on a paper napkin....this is one of the crunchiest rolls you will ever come across.

It taste YUM! with tomato sauce.

This is one of the easiest dipping in eggs and bread crumbs...I hope you will try this weekend.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make.
