On 13th June my younger one turned 9. He is an energetic fellow, full of life. A moody at times and very possessive about me( I guess it's the age). He had been counting days remaining for his birthday past 15-20 days and was very excited about it. He had told me long time back that he wanted me to bake for him a Chocolate fudge cake.
Now it's been more than 2 months that I am having a low grade fever which shoots up at times. In spite of all medical check ups and all the medications it's not subsiding. On his birthday as the destiny had planned my fever shot up and I was in distress. I wanted to bake the cake for him. The poor thing realised seeing me, that I was in no position to stand for a long time . Nevertheless, we ordered a cake for him but I still wanted to make something special for him.. feeling guilty of not being able to please him and fulfill his wish .
He is very fond of cheese, so I thought of treating him with a cheesy day. Morning I made his favorite cheese bread rolls, afternoon was Paneer butter masala, Dal makhani and Garlic Naan for him and evening were pizzas. Most of the things I ordered out but promised him that I will bake the cake for him in near future.
Bread slices (fresh)
250 gms grated processed cheese ( I used Amul)
1 tsp freshly crushed pepper
2 green chillies chopped
4 tbsp boiled macroni
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
salt to taste
oil for frying
Remove the edges of the bread and make it flat by rolling it with a rolling pin.
Mix all the remaining ingredients and divide it into 8-10 equal portions and make small balls.
In a bowl take water . Keep the flattened bread on the palm and make it moist on either side with water , else gently dip it in water and squeeze out the water.( I prefer the first way)
Keep the cheese ball in the centre and cover it with bread from all the four sides properly without leaving any gaps and give it a proper shape.
Roll it gently in rice flour, this will help remove extra moisture from the bread and will not absorb excess oil while frying. This method I read at Shilpa's blog.
Heat oil and deep fry the rolls on medium heat.
Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney.
