Stuffed Bread

Stuffed Bread
This time MFB challenge is very simple and close to our heart recipe.The challenge is to prepare a dish ย that we commonly make during Ramadan in our homes that’s filled with nostalgia”Ramadan Memories”There are many dishes to choose from,and i’ve selected the Stuffed Bread which is very common in our area.

So this is one of my most favorite among our traditional snacks.And there are many more deliciousness served in our place which i love to the chore.Whatever new snacks and innovations we bring in our cooking it can never beat the taste of our traditional ones.Agree or not?hehe!In my home Koyada or erachipathil is a must dish for all 30 days of Ramadan.We all sit together and do this job like one do rolling,one stuffing and many for folding!hehe Missing all those fun filled days,.But here I’m so lazy to cook that…Once in a blue moon.sigh!Eagerly waiting for vacation!

At home umma used to place an order for freshly baked bread day before.This is a medium sized bread without slicing..For preparing this, first make a cavity for this and stuff it with spicy chicken or meat filling along with an egg.Here i got small breads so stuffed only half of the egg.Then shallow fry it by dipping it in egg white till its crisp and golden brown.Just love this.

  5. Finally add in lots of coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
  6. This is our basic filling for all stuffs.
Now Assembling
Here i got this kind of breads.You can also use small buns.
Make a deep cavity like shown in the pic.Fill some of the stuffing and then place the egg and some more filling.Cover it with that piece and stick it with maida glue.Don’t over fill as it tends to break.When it’s done.dip it in egg white and shallow fry the bread with 2 or 3 tbsp oil.Flip and cook all the four sides. until crisp and brown.

Notes: Keep an eye on it while frying as it tends to burn fast.

This is such a delicious snack that is filling to tummy and mouthwatering!That crunchy breads with the spicy stuffing and egg inside is so yum!

Happy Cooking!

  • I am missing home! ๐Ÿ™ When are you going on vacation? Roti narachathu is a treat for us. The buns you used are the soft ones like pav? This is a superb idea, I never thought of using these buns for making this. InshaAllah. This is exactly how we make too. ๐Ÿ™‚ And the koyada tradition of rolling, filling, pinching, frying sitting in the palaka in kitchen with all chattering and laughing – I miss home. Btw, have you moved back to Jeddah?

  • Ya Allah… Bun narchathu! We never had it in our side, and I was surprised to read of this dish in Fayiza Moosa's Malabar cookbook, and here I see it, looking so droolworthy on your screen! Alla, nombinaara pakal chaaya kudikunne? ๐Ÿ˜› I have to make this once for sure… at least for the experience of it… Food is a hallmark in your area, right… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much dear!You have to try it for sure,it's worth trying!haha this one was pre Ramadan click!Yes true that food is really a hallmark!

  • Love this! Sounds amazing! I thing the filling sounds great and I would imagine that it would be versatile enough for many different types of appetizers! Love the photos too!
