Fried Bread Rolls

For the RCI Mumbai Event...
One keeps away from this snack, since it absorbs a  large amount of oil and should be had hot off the wok! However this was a common  evening snack among friends and family. Slices of Modern Bread which came wrapped in the distinctive blue and white chequered waxpaper and any leftover dry curry containing potato, served with tomato sauce and green coriander chutney. This also became part of the re-inventing process from today's breakfast, mild Potato curry, deep fried hot green chillies and very lightly sauted  baby spinach leaves  stuffed inside, regular store-bought slices of sourdough bread.
 The crusts were taken off the rectangles.
Sprinkle water on the bread slice.
Do not soak in water.
Quickly dip in the edges in a bowl of water.
Fill with the potato mixture, laying down a fried green chilli in the middle and gently fold over/bring together the long sides of the rectangle!
Hands in 'namaste' position will help close the seams, a little bit of water will work too!
Make a sausage shape with fairly tapering ends.
Deep fry in very hot oil.
I have also made this in the oven: brush generously with melted butter or oil and bake at 350 F for about 10 -15 minutes until the crusts start turning golden brown.

Potato Masala
2- Yukon Gold potatoes, boiled
2 tbsps- finely chopped onions
Handful of baby spinach leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Srilankan Curry Powder [ one can use any garam masala for this recipe]
1 green chilli, deep fried
Using very little oil, about a tsp or so, saute the onions, ginger garlic paste and the spinach. Add all the spice powders and mix well. Add it to coarsely mashed potatoes. Cool before using as stuffing.
