We are starting the next BM Edition with BM#54.
I will be starting with one of my favorite themes, the Deep Fried Love. Well in this theme, you get to showcase, enjoy all snacks, dishes that are deep-fried. Deep-fried mostly reminds me of snacks. However, I have made Virudhunagar Ennai Parotta and Delhi Paratha Wali Gali Mixed Paratha. Both these Indian Bread are deep-fried, and tastes amazing!
So for week 1, we going to be enjoying a hearty snack instead of these heavy-duty parathas. For day 1, I have a childhood favorite, Bread Roll. Though I had enjoyed this much at my friend's place, Amma had never actually made it herself. Well, she was always busy making so many other dishes!
When I had made it the first time, those were mini serves and with familiar vegetables. Today's recipe has broccoli and carrot and tastes ultimate after being fried!
The day I was making these, I had about 6 other dishes being done. So I was almost giving it up. Somehow the last moment decision to make it as planned and freeze the entire batch came to mind. This makes a great freezer-friendly snack.
You can make it and freeze to be deep-fried later. If you are averse to deep-frying, try baking it as well. It should come out as good as the other. Since the whole day was spent cooking all the snacks, I was not able to taste. However, Konda and Athamma enjoyed and they had to skip their dinner by the time I had completed all the dishes.
Konda said the broccoli gave a wonderful taste to the stuffing, so you know how to use your new vegetable right. This was the first time I was cooking with broccoli and wanted to have a friendly dish to get used to it.
So make this next for your party, will surely be a great hit!
