Bread Balls

“Something unhealthy is always delicious!!!” That is what I think at times… Can have a baked or sauted version of several dishes too, but having deep-fried is always super-yum! ;)
‘Bread Balls’ – Nothing new, it’s simply a bread roll only but in a ball shape :P I have had it many a times before but nothing can beat bread rolls that my sister-in-law make! I still remember the day she made an original fried version of it specially for me on the previous day of my departure :) And I bet, I will never find the same taste n flavors anywhere else… I missed her so much while making it, so bugged her by a message!  
Wanted to be a little calorie conscious this time by posting baked version ;) But hunger didn’t allow me to wait for more than 10 mins, so posting a fried version of the simplest n quickest snack… :P

Makes:

INGREDIENTS:
8 Bread Slices
2 Big Potatoes
1/2 cup Green Peas
1/4 cup Chopped Onions
2 tsp Chopped Coriander
1/2 tsp Red Chilly Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Amchur Powder
Salt, to taste
Oil, to deep-fry

STEPS TO FOLLOW:
– Trim the sides of all bread slices and keep it aside.
– Boil potato and green peas separately. Drain excess water and transfer them to a bowl.
– Add rest of all ingredients (except oil) and mash them well. 
– Divide the stuffing into 8 portions.
– Fill a shallow-bowl or plate with water and soak a bread slice into it for 5 seconds on each side.
– Squeeze all water out of it using your palms.
– Put one portion of stuffing onto it and cover it from all sides with bread to make a nice ball.
– Repeat the same process for other 7 balls too.
– Heat oil in a kadai (deep-pan) and deep-fry them in 2 batches till golden brown in color.
– Serve hot with tomato ketchup :) 
SJ’s NOTE:
– You can add finely chopped veggies too. Last time, I added french beans, carrots, capsicum, corn etc. :P
– For a variant, add paneer or cheese in the stuffing!
– If not deep-fried, you can bake them for 30 mins on 220 degrees!
