Here is a delicious snack using the Meat Masala. I had this snack for the first time from my freind Hanan's place around few years back . This was something new to me at that time. It's a great tea-time snack if you have the filling already made ahead and is normally served warm with ketchup as dip. The cheese and the masala filled inside really works magic I feel. The crunchy crust outside and the Meat Masala along with touch of melting cheese inside is just divine.........
10 slices of bread (dont use sweet bread)
Cream cheese (of your choice) – as reqd.
2-3 Large egg whites
Bread crumbs - As required.
Meat Masala – As required.
Vegetable oil - to deep fry the bread rolls.
1. Lightly beat the egg whites and keep aside.
2. Cut the crust of the bread and flatten the bread using a rolling pin until almost flat.
3. Spread a thin layer of cheese on all four edges and inside if you prefer. This should be done only to one side of the bread.
4. Place a tablespoon of Meat Masala in the centre and fold the bread slice into half with Meat Masala inside and press the edges tightly to seal the stuffing in.
5. Just dip the bread roll in egg whites and roll it over the bread crumbs until the bread is evenly coated with crumbs.
6. Repeat the same process with other slices.
7. Deep fry in oil until golden brown.
8. Drain the excess oil in kitchen towel and serve warm.
If you want a better looking bread roll you can cut the bread with cookie cutter or even cups/glasses/lid of any jar into round shapes or any other shapes and then flatten it using the rolling pin. If you are doing it this way, you need 2 slices of bread to make a bread roll. That is; take 2 slices of bread, cut into your desired shapes, roll it and flatten it. Then spread cheese on one side of one bread slice, keep the Meat Masala in, and cover with the other slice and press the edges well to seal the stuffing in. then follow the same steps from 5. This one will look real good to make it for the guests.
While making bread roll this way, there will be quite lot of bread leftover after cutting the crust. You can just grind them to bread-crumbs and freeze them for later use.
