6 large bread slices,
2 boiled, peeled and mashed potatoes,
1 finely chopped onion,
1 finely chopped green chilli (optional),
1/4 tsp red chilli powder,
1/4 tsp cumin powder,
1/4 tsp amchur/dry mango powder,
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves,
salt and pepper to taste and
oil for deep frying.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and add the chopped onions to it. Saute the onion until they turn light brown. Add green chillies if using and saute for few minutes. Add all the dry spices- chilli powder, cumin powder and Amchur powder. And immediately add the mashes potatoes, some salt and chopped coriander leaves and mix everything well. Set aside to cool, when it cools make 6 small balls with this mixture and keep aside.
Dip a bread slice in a bowl of water and remove immediately. Squeeze the slice between both palms to remove excess water. Place a small ball of the potato mixture in the center and fold both the sides inwards, like one does for spring rolls. Roll the other corners and seal it by pinching it, do the same with the rest of the slices and deep fry them in hot oil until they turn crisp and golden brown. Serve hot with ketchup or any chutney.
Instead of dipping the bread slice in water, one can even sprinkle some water on the slices to make them soft.
This can be made to any shape-round, oval or oblong..Just make sure that the potato mixture is completely covered with the bread.
