How to serve these rolls?

The best way to serve this yummy low calorie rolls with green dipping sauce or any sweet and sour sauce.

Variations

  • Feel free to swap out the veggies with the veggies of your choice.

  • Although these rolls are fried in a lesser quantity of oil, you can even bake for more healthy options.


  • For egg-free options, skip the outer egg coating. Seal the edges by using a cornflour-water mixture.


  • If you are looking for more flavour, try adding soy sauce while cooking veggies.

Some tips and tricks

  1. Grate veggies if possible as they cook faster and mix well, thus easy to fill in the rolls.


  2. Cool the cooked veggies filling before stuffing into the rolls.


  3. Serve rolls immediately. If kept for a longer time, it will be soggy.



  4. Green onions give it a unique taste as compared to routine onions.


  5. Cumin enhances the taste and aids digestion, so I highly suggest adding cumin seeds or cumin powder to this recipe.


  6. Use boiled potato only as this serve as a binding agent.


  7. For egg-free options, use milk instead of egg for sealing and skip the outer coating with egg.


  8. Not having chat masala, try replacing it with lemon juice.


  9. Mash veggies gently to avoid the loss of their texture and taste.


  10. To make rolls in large batches, prepare the filling in advance and refrigerate. Use this filling to make rolls whenever you plan to make them.


  11. Save the outer edges of bread slices for later use in other preparations as bread crumbs by just drying out in the sun for 2-3 days.
