Creating a blog was out of the question for a long time for me, as measuring everything in the kitchen was like biting into an eggshell. I enjoy cooking and don’t want to waste even a slightest bit of enjoyment in that small world of mine. But little did I know that everything will change, when my husband came home with the Oscar nominated film ‘Julie and Julia’( a real life story) where Julie Powell (part played by Amy Adams) challenged herself to make all the 524 recipes from Julia Child's cook book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and blogging all her experiences (The Julie/Julia Project). It was an inspiring movie. A few days later when we were discussing this casually with a friend of ours over tea…everything changed dramatically…..” How about you making at least half of it in one year? Not French but your own. 262 recipes that will inspire others and present it as a blog?” For a minute my mind traveled faster than light… With an experience as a helper in my mother in laws kitchen for 6 years followed by a three year everyday struggle to satisfy the palate of my foodie husband, if I cannot do it then why should I cook? But on the other side with an experience in English literature extending no more than expanding outline stories in English grammar class when I was 18 and two small kids that come in handy at times, will a commitment for the next one year work? Anyway my ‘cook's ego’ didn’t allow me to say no...

So my friends …here I am opening my recipe book, trying to perfect and present 262 recipes in the coming 365 days….A Challenge that will of course tastes good. Come.. Have a walk with me along my journey.. Cheering and inspiring….Forgiving and tolerating…Testing and tasting….for ‘A Tasty Challenge’

Chicken Bread Roll

Recipe No: 49
This is an excellent appetizer/ snack that you can make from the left over Chicken Keema. You can make the rolls at least a day in advance and fry just before serving. Once fried, it will stay crispy for 2-3 hours too, making it an excellent party appetizer.
Ingredients                                                  Makes 12-15 rolls
  • Chicken Keema…………...1/2 of the recipe
  • Bread slices…………………12 (Cut off the crust of all the 4 sides)
  • Eggs……………………..…….3
  • Water…………………………3 Tablespoons
  • Bread crumbs……………..as per needed
  • Oil for deep frying
Method of Preparation
  1. Wet both of your hand thoroughly with cold water. While wet, place a bread slice in your palm and press with the other palm gently, till the bread slice in thin and very pliable everywhere. If you want you can roll it with a roller gently.
  2. Place two tablespoons of filling lengthwise towards the edge of one of the longest sides of the bread. Take care not to spread the filling on the entire surface of the bread. Leave a small space towards the edge too, to avoid spilling while rolling.
  3. Roll the bread lengthwise keeping the filling inside. As the bread is slightly wet it will stick to itself. Pinch the sides to close.
  4. Repeat this with all the other slices of bread.
  5. Beat the eggs with 3 Tablespoons of water. Dip each bread roll in the egg  and then roll  it in the bread crumbs.
  6. Heat at least 2 cups of oil and on high heat fry them till golden brown.
  7. Serve them hot with ketchup.
Notes: You can substitute Chicken filling with Vegetable, Beef or Fish.
Bread crumbs can be made easily from fresh bread at home using a food processor or a blender. Just cut them into small pieces and blend.
As all the ingredients except the egg  are cooked, its okay to fry it in high heat. This will ensure low absorption of oil.

 




Make it, enjoy the deliciousness and 
serve it to your family with love…
