Weekend evenings calls for some snacking with tea if we are at home. A late lunch, lazy late afternoon nap and then.... ohh we are not going out, then let me prepare something. I do the planning in the morning though as soon as we are sure we have no invitations, we are not going out and just relax at home. The lazy team finally have their tea and snacks around 7:30 pm. Then comes the final verdict.... we will not have dinner. The uber cool, crazy family have their music system and television on together. The quieter lady of the house  urges can we play one at a time. The junior takes advantage of the whole situation and skips his studies. In a whole, these are the moments that are making memories, beautiful ones. The lady loves weaving memories..... had there been enough vocabulary, she would have penned down a memoir.

I had some paneer and thought let me do something else with it instead of a curry. I found bread roll as a nice option. You can see I did not do much fancy with the shape, I wished to be relaxed in doing the thing.The preparation time was not so long and the snack was yummy that much I can assure you. It was done with ingredients we have in our kitchen all the time. I have captured the preparation stepwise. Let us do it. The very very middle class lady retained the bread slice borders to saute with veggies and have it, she does not serve this to her men though. She loves to flaunt what she believes in.

Let us prepare the filling first. Heat 2tbsp oil in a wok and temper with cumin seeds. As they splutter, add the sliced onions. Fry till golden brown. Add the green peas and saute for 2 minutes. Add the mashed potato, sprinkle salt, mix well. Stir for 2 minutes.

Add the crumbled paneer. Fold in well. Add the chopped green chillies, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and turmeric powders, sugar and little salt.

Mix and stir well for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Take the bread slices and water in different bowls. They look as below.

Soak each bread slice in water and squeeze the excess water. Place some filling on the middle of a bread slice just as in the picture below.

Now put another slice on top of it as seen below.

Now carefully fold both sides and press. Press both ends too. They look as below.

Heat oil in a wok. Deep fry the rolls in batches. They look as below....

Put them on tissue papers to soak the excess oil before serving. Serve hot with choice of your sauce, chatni, salad.
