pot at to

I was dropping by this friend's house far too many times for dinner and thought I should give this nice couple some of my custom made lethal bazookas..But the catch was that they were vegetarians..

For someone like me who shares the heavy burden of keeping the population of chickens..atlantic fish..prawns…and many other overpopulated species under was sacrilegious to cook something vegetarian…Neways after seeking blessings from a well adorned and sealed chicken kept in the freezer ,I started on the unthinkable

A couple of potatoes and onions were ruthlessly scrubbed..shaved and sliced..By then I was deep in emotional guilt at doing what a pure non vegetarian should have never done..
Nevertheless a little guilt is as good as a fulsome guilt..And I sliced a few carrots and green chilies to complete the blood shed…

After frying the onions along with the green chilies and a dash of turmeric powder,chilly powder, salt add the potatoes which should be already cooked and mashed separately.By the way I forgot to tell you that keep the potatoes cooked and smashed .Also cook the carrot sliced length wise and about 1 inch long along with the green peas..Drain the water out and keep it aside..Make sure they are not overcooked..
Add the carrot slice and green peas to the potato already in the tawa..Mix the whole lot until the entire thing becomes one good looking filling..Add salt and red chilly as required. And keep the stuff aside..

Meanwhile remove the edge of a few bread slices..Keep a plate aside with some water in it…Toss the bread keep your hand a few feet above the plate..Since we don’t have any butter on either side murphy’s law doesn’t work here…make sure that you wet only one side of the slice.Squeeze water from it keep the slice between your hands and pressing gently..(not like u squeeze juice from a lemon)

Place our potato mix on the dry side of the bread and roll the this is some art..A kind of sculpting expertise is required..Seal the edge such that the potato mix is not visible now..If someone is there insensible like me just though of reminding that you can seal it without any adhesive…

Now heat lot of oil..i mean really lot that this roll should be floating in it…Add a crushed cardamom to the oil for a good aroma..when the oil is really gently the rolls and keep tilling it over until all the sides are golden brown..

Now it looks like something from the bakery…

thought for the day:don't count your chicken rolls before they cook !!
