Back in my school days final year, we had a Cookery Teacher, who was a young newly married. She took us students to her home one day (because she was one of those friendly teachers!) and showed us how to make this simple snack. A good idea to use up left over bread slices!

Ingredients:

Bread slices – 12 (for 3-6 people)

Potatoes – 3-4

Salt, pepper to taste

Pinch of chilli powder (optional)

1- 2 Eggs for coating

Breadcrumbs for coating

Oil for frying

Method:

Boil potatoes, cool and mash. Add salt, pepper, chilli powder and set aside.

Cut of edges of bread slices.

Dip each slice in a small bowl of water, lightly, squeeze out water between the palms of your hands.

Take a small portion of the mashed potato and put in the centre of the bread slice.

Roll it up like a finger snack.

Dip in beaten egg.

Coat with the breadcrumbs.

Heat a frypan with oil and fry them gently, with a light golden colour. Do not overcook.

Drain any excess oil on paper.

Can be eaten plain or with a dip – tomato ketchup or chilli sauce.
