A tasty and satisfying tea time snack, suited for children or to serve as a party starter. Left-over Rajma or chana may be drained from excess gravy, blended and used as the filling. Many vegetarian and non-vegetarian variations are given for the filling which use any curry you have on hand.

Recipe Notes

Step 1

Savory Bread Rolls
Peel and chop the onion, garlic and ginger.

Step 2

Savory Bread Rolls
Heat the ghee or oil in a fry pan and fry the chopped ingredients till light brown. Add chilli, turmeric and garam masala powders, cook stirring for few seconds. Add the cooked Rajma and salt. Cook stirring for 1-2 minutes and remove from fire and leave aside to cool for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Savory Bread Rolls
Blend the rajma mixture in mixer-grinder till smooth (I use the Panasonic Super Mixer Grinder for this). The ground mixture should be like a thick paste, which spreads easily on the bread. Use few drops of water if needed while blending. Add one tablespoon of butter and mix well.

Step 4

Savory Bread Rolls
Preheat the oven to 200C. (I use Panasonic OTG). Trim the sides of the bread slices (ensure that all the hard crust is trimmed away) and flatten them lightly with a rolling pin. (Take care not to break the slices. Slightly more pressure is needed on the sides of the bread than on center). Keep the bread slices wrapped in a clean wet cloth as you work. Take a bread slice and spread with 1/8 of the rajma mixture. Sprinkle some mint and coriander leaves over it and roll up firmly. Moisten the edge with little water and press to seal. Use all the bread and filling thus.

Step 5

Savory Bread Rolls
Grease a baking tray generously with melted butter. Place the prepared rolls in it and brush with melted butter (Leave some space between rolls to enable them brown uniformly), and bake till the rolls turn golden brown.

To Serve

Savory Bread Rolls
Serve hot with mayonnaise or tomato ketchup.
Variations for fillings: 1. Blend paneer burji till smooth. 2. Pick out the chicken or mutton pieces from left-over curry and shred finely. Mix with little gravy and use as the filling. 3. Pick out the fish pieces from the left-over curry. De-bone and flake them. Mix with little curry and use as the filling. 4. Spread the bread slices with Hummus and sprinkle with chilli flakes and parsley or coriander leaves.
