Baked Bread Rolls


In our home both hubby and I like to have Snacks with tea. Though I like deep fried snacks, the calories in them causes some worry! Had half loaf of bread, so thought of trying something with that. I generally bake bread whenever I use them in vegetable biryani, bread upma and other dishes. This time I wanted to keep some stuffing and bake it. Crispy snack is ready, with minimal oil.

Baked Bread Rolls

Preparation time: 5 Minutes | Cooking time:  30 Minutes | Makes : 6 pieces

Category: Snacks


Bread – 6 slices (I used multi grain wheat bread, but wheat and white bread can also be used)

Oil/Cooking spray – I used PAM olive oil spray to grease and little oil to brush

Potato Masala:

Potato – 2, medium sized

Peas – 2 tbsp

Turmeric powder – a pinch

Fennel(Sombu) powder – a pinch

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1/8 tsp

Garam masala powder – 1/4 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp

Salt – as needed


Method :

Potato Masala:

  • Cut the potato into half and boil the potatoes (I microwaved them for 7 minutes). Peel the skin and mash them (You can use a fork to mash)


  • Add 1 tsp of oil to a pan. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds. Add onions and saute till onions are cooked. Add garam masala, red chilli powder, fennel seed powder, turmeric powder and allow it to cook for a minute. Add mashed potato and peas, and cook covered for 2-3 mins. Switch off and keep the stuffing aside


Bread Roll:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degree Fahrenheit
  • Trim the edges of the bread and roll them as thin as you can with a chapathi roller. Add approx 1 tbsp of stuffing in the middle, and seal the edges with little water

  • Take a baking tray and put parchment paper on top. Use some cooking spray on the paper, and brush little oil on  both sides of bread rolls. Bake for 8-10 mins. Turn over and cook for another 8-10 minutes, till the rolls turn golden brown. Serve it with ketchup/ranch


My Notes:

  • The timing differs from oven to oven, so keep an eye after 8 minutes
  • You can add ghee to make them rich
  • Any vegetable of your choice can be added in the stuffing
  • Can grill them instead of baking

    This does sound interesting. I’ve never heard of anything such as this. I’m not too familiar with Indian food and can’t get a lot of the ingredients in the rural area that I live. But I do have an Indian Food board on Pinterest, and I will share this there. Thanks so much!
