Bread cigars

Today's dish was a creativity flowing in my kitchen and hopefully it was moulded  pretty good which i never thought it would.I had a lunch potluck  party with some of my blogger friends a week back and the starters were on me so i decided to try and innovate a  new dish ,had babycorns at home so i wanted to try something with them,i had hardly used babycorn all this while and thought why not give it a try with these little beauties.Bread and babycorn are so common and vibrant ingredients that anyone can create their own personal best out of it.I reckon you can even try baking the bread rolls instead of frying and that would be more healthier ,on the other note one can use brown breads instead of white bread for the healthy variation.Deep frying is always so luxurious method and hence without a thought i jumped over to fry these cigars :D .I made some paste salad for the potluck as well which is my next post,see you then,have a nice weekened people .

approx for 3-4 ppl
ingredients :
10-12 slices of sandwhich bread
10-12 babycorns ( slice ,sprinkle salt and ltl garam masala on the babycorns )
1/2 cup plain flour ( maida )
garam masala to taste
1 cup shredded cheese
salt to taste
for the spread :
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
3 tbsp chilli garlic paste ( i used ready made red chilli garlic paste )
black pepper to taste
method :
Trim the edges ( the brown parts ) of the bread slices.Make the spread by mixing the the tomato ketchup ,chilli garlic paste ,a pinch of salt and pepper .Steam the bread slices and roll them with a roller pin to flatten them ,spread a tbsp of sauce - paste mixture all over one side,spread some cheese all over,place a slice babycorn in one end and start rolling the bread  like a cigar or a pipe .Mix plain flour with very little water to make a medium thick paste . Dip the bread rolls in the flour paste and deep fry till golden brown in colour .Drain on the paper towel and serve hot with ketch up or chilli sauce.
