Bread rolls- not deep fried but baked!

Bread rolls remind me of my childhood days when it would be a celebration. Mumm would be working in the kitchen since the evening to make them. She would carefully chop all veggies and make the filling and then fill the bread slices first. We would be watching, salivating at the thought of hot deep fried rolls!

We had a packet of whole wheat bread in the kitchen nearing expiry and decided to give it a try. This is also for my friend, Shuchita, who loves potatoes!!
this pic has potato rolls as well as bread rolls!

Baked bread rolls

1 large onion chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 capsicum chopped
1 cup peas
1 cup grated carrot
3 large potatoes boiled and mashed
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp each of turmeric, coriander and garam masala
peanuts, raisins, cashews- a handful, roasted or fried
1 full pack whole wheat bread
oil for frying veggies and brushing bread before baking

Heat oil in a wok. Add onions, cook till they turn pink. Add tomatoes and ginger garlic paste, fry for a few minutes. Add all veggies, salt and the powdered spices. Cook covered till done. Add mashed potatoes and fried peanuts. mix well. Keep separately to cool.

Take the whole wheat bread. You can cut the ends if you like, I didn't. Wet with a little water, fill a spoonful of the filling and roll the edges, making them stick and making the bread appear like a roll. Keep in a greased dish or a baking sheet. Do this for all slices, or as many rolls you need. You can also save these in the fridge for baking later too.

To bake, set oven to 180 deg. Grease rolls on both sides with oil, bake for 30 mins and turn in between to make the rolls crisp on both sides. These were best hot right out of the oven.

I couldn't click a pic. We were watching date trap on UTV Bindaas, this week's trap was good with Sahil the rapper! By the time we were done, no rolls were left!
