Chatpata Monsoon Snacks

Its time to sit back, watch the rain, and bite into some good old comfort snacks with your favourite beverage.

Try these two easy recipes and have yourself a chill- out weekend!

1. Crispy pao or rolled up bread 

The basic idea is to use a filling of your choice, fill it in some bread and deep fry them till crispy.

You can use pao (cut in half, pull out the extra bread so that you have space for the stuffing), or bread slices (trim off the corners).

What you will need:

Quantities will depend on how many people you are making for, so please exercise your discretion.

  • Pao or bread slices
  • Filling – cooked veggies, chicken, prawns, paneer, etc
  • Egg – beaten with a dash of milk, salt, pepper

Method:

  • Prepare your filling. The filling should be dry. This could be leftover or freshly made vegetables, kheema, prawn chilly fry, chicken, paneer bhurji etc.
  • You can also boil some potatoes, add onions, garlic, ginger, green chillies, dry masalas and kothmir – if you like potato bhaji filling.
  • If using bread slices; dip each one in a bowl of water and press out the excess water gently.
  • Add your filling and roll it up in the bread slice.
  • If using pao; then add your filling in the hollow of the pao.
  • Dip the bread on both sides, in a mixture of beaten egg seasoned and with a dash of milk.
  • Deep fry till golden brown
