When I was girl, my mother used to make bread rolls. They had left over vegetables spiced up and stuffed into bread that was deep fried. We saw a lot of that on the table in summers when we kids turned our noses up on the watery gooey vegetables and preferred eating our roti and rice with pickles and a fried egg.

Well, the summer vegetables are still watery and bland. But both my sons won’t touch anything deep fried by me. Oh they will have fried momos and aloo tikki from a chaat stall. But if I make anything rich and unhealthy, they will object. Don’t ask why, I don’t know.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the theory that vegetables are good for us. Wrapping them with bread batter and baking them is a good way to get the vegetables consumed. The family gobbles them up with more enthusiasm than they would eat the deep fried snack my mother used to make.
