Bread Baskets Baked with Paneer Matar Stuffing ( Indian Cheese and Peas Stuffing)
This is one awesome recipe., I adapted from a very traditional snack from India which is traditionally deep fried...it is commonly known as "Bread Roll". But me being me..I made the baked version which is more presentable, heart and figure healthy, You can enjoy it guilt free since the portion size is smaller and more filling :). An absolute gorgeous recipe! Let us get started : Required : You need oven, set to prebake at 425f., muffin mould tin(medium size), preferably non stick dark metal. I will attach link to the recipe of cheese and peas stuffing for your reference. The stuffing s simple and can be used in different styles: as in wrap, grilled sandwich, side with Indian bread called roti. This is a great meal for the kids. Please adjust the red chili powder and garam masala if preparing or the kids..or you can kip it too...cumin powder adds good flavor for that.
