Baked Bread Bites

Yesterday was a cold day and I was wondering what to prepare as snack to cope up with the chill weather. I had one packet of bread untouched for few days and thought of trying something new and simple with them. I made a filling with paneer and spinach which is our favourite and a classic combo. I use this combo to prepare Paneer Spinach Corn sandwich as well as in Paneer Spinach bonda. I baked them rather than frying which didn't take much time too. I was confused what to name these and finally decided on Baked Bread Bites. The bread was a little crunchy, filling was great and these hot bites were sure perfect for a cold evening. My hubby too enjoyed these a lot and was curious how I made the breads into these shapes :)



What you need?

8 Bread slices
1 cup grated Paneer
1/2 cup chopped Spinach
1 Onion chopped
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1/4 tsp Chaat masala
1 tsp Oil
Salt


How to prepare?

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter cumin seeds. Saute onions until they become translucent. Add spinach and saute until spinach is cooked. Now add all the spices - chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala, chaat masala and the salt. Finally add paneer and combine everything well. Keep this filling aside to cool.

Take each bread slice. With a container lid, press on the bread surface so as to get a circular shape. Try using a lid with which you can make biggest circle out of the bread so that just the sides are wasted. Now using a rolling pin, gently roll on the bread to flatten it. Apply a little water along the circumference for sealing purpose. Keep the filling inside and fold the bread, seal the edge.

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil and lightly grease it. Transfer the breads to the tray and slightly brush some oil on them as well. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until they become slight brown. Serve hot with tomato sauce.

Serves 2-3

Notes:
* Gently handle the bread so that it won't tear off.
* It's better to use large sandwich breads.
* You can fold into any shapes you desire.
* You can deep fry or shallow fry also.
