Instructions Checklist
  • Heat one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add the chopped onions, and saute until they are softened.

  • Mix the turmeric and chili powder into the frying pan and remove the pan from the heat. Stir the mashed potatoes and cilantro into the frying pan; stir to mix well.

  • Sprinkle a few drops of water onto each slice of bread. Flatten the bread gently. Spoon 1/4 of the potato mixture onto the slice of bread. Roll the bread into a cylinder. Seal the edges together by pinching the ends with your fingers, use more water if it is necessary to keep the bread sealed. Do the same with the remaining 3 slices of bread.

  • Pour the three tablespoons of oil into a large frying pan or wok. Heat the oil to a high heat. Place the bread rolls into the hot oil and fry until crispy.

Believe it or not this is really good. I was quite skeptical but I'll try almost anything once. My husband and I and one of my 2 boys liked this a lot. It could have used some salt and pepper but that was easily fixed at the table. If we wind up with leftover mashed potatoes again (doesn't happen often with potato-loving boys!) I'll definitely make this one again. Read More

This recipe should be list under appetizers and snack, as it has nothing to do with making bread. Read More

These were wonderful... I didnt think I'd like them so much but I did. Had with a bowl of homemade tomato red pepper soup and it was perfect. You could use this recipe with your Thanksgiving leftovers... stuffing and turkey added to this or instead of the potatoes would be wonderful Read More
