Bread Rolls

Make a filling for the bread roll. It can be anything to your imagination. You can use samosa filling with veggies / egg filling / meat filling like for cutlets, or fish cutlet kind of filling.

I used egg filling: Sautéed –  chopped garlic (4 cloves),  chopped ginger (half inch piece), chopped onion (1 medium size) and salt in oil.  When it is translucent add coriander powder (2 tsp), chili powder(1 tsp),  turmeric(little), crushed black pepper, Garam masala(half tsp). After a couple of minutes, add three-four eggs and mix/stir well. Add chopped coriander leaves towards the end.

Cut the edges of the bread.  If the Bread Slice is big you can cut into two.

Dip bread quickly in water and take it out and lay it flat on your palm and with the other hand press and squeeze the water out.

Now put the filling in the middle and cover with the bread as a roll and press the edges so it covers around the filling in a cylindrical shape

Roll that in bread Crumbs and shallow fry in oil (my friend did it in the oven with oil sprayed and she said it came out good as well)

Roasted Peanuts

IMG_3911    …kappalandiye…  kappalandiye….

Put few spoons of water in raw peanut (1 cup) in a microwavable plate with some salt (desired level. None is fine too)… And mix well… Water is just to make the peanuts wet… So just a little.. If you end up having more water in the plate .. Drain it.

Microwave one minute .. Take it out and stir. Microwave again for another minute… Stir again.From then onwards I take it out every 30seconds and stir… Until it is ready… When it is very hot… It is hard to tell if it is ready as it will be little chewy… You can keep few peanuts aside to cool and check if it is crispy. Microwave again if it is not crispy.

Usually, I have to do 4-5   30 seconds.
Also when it is done, Color changes a little bit to the light brownish side. Time can vary depending on microwave power.

After few times you will learn what works for your microwave and taste… Do small quantity and try first…
