Potato Bread Pattice | Bread Patties (With Mashed Potatoes)


The number of possible dishes with potatoes and bread together is unbelievably huge. Aloo and bread are 2 of the most loved foodstuffs around the world, and this Bread Patties is one more way you can enjoy this pair. This easy, crispy, tasty and vegan Bread Pattice is with spiced mashed potatoes, which makes it a lot like the North Indian Bread Pakoda. Although, the taste and procedure of making are still different.

About Potato Bread Pattice

To begin with, the difference – in bread pakoda, the aloo mixture is stuffed between 2 slices of bread whereas in Bread Patties, the potato mixture is placed only on one slice, coated with gram flour (besan) batter and shallow fried. However, the Bread Pattice can also be referred to as bread cutlet.

So, once you bite onto the Bread Patties, you’ll have a set of 2 flavors and textures. First, from one side of the crisp besan coated bread. Second, from the other side of the crisp besan coated potato mixture. And trust me, its just amazing how both these come together to form a yummy snack.

I got acquainted to this Bread Pattice at one of my a Parsi friend’s place. She had served us these scrumptious batter fried cutlets laced with a perfectly spice potato mixture with ginger tea as an evening snack. This was one combination I would never forget. Hence, it did travel back with me, to my home.

As I successfully tried the Bread Patties at home, the recipe became quite a hit instantly with my family as well. So, these days, I often make these cutlets as a quick snack with the evening tea or as a finger food in parties and small get togethers.

More on this Potato Bread Pattice

Here, in the illustration, you will find that I have also shared the method of cooking the potatoes in a pressure cooker. But if you ae well versed with that part, you can easily keep the potatoes boiled a day before, refrigerate and use them the next day for making the Bread Pattice.

For the potato mixture, I have used the same recipe as that of this popular Maharashtrian style Batata Vada. This aloo mixture recipe is commonly used for a lot of other preparations in Maharashtra’s food culture. The best thing is, if you have some of this leftover aloo mixture, you can use that too for this Bread Patties.

You can also modify the mixture according to what your palate is craving for, at that moment. For instance, jazz it up with some grated cheddar or processed cheese and make it a cheesy snack for your friendly social gatherings at home.

For the bread, you can use any type of bread like wheat flour bread, multigrain bread, brown bread, white bread or sandwich bread. The recipe of the Potato Bread Pattice is quite simple. So, it makes for the apt after school snack for kids too. These cutlets can be relished with a side of mint chutney, coriander chutney, mint-coriander chutney, date-tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup. 

Variations

As much as I love trying an original, individual recipe, I also love creating variations of it. Because that’s also when your creative juices are put to the best use. Also, something more out of a base recipe is always a good option as life is all about variety!

So, with this Bread Patties as the reference, I have made some versions that can be easily made at home. These have different stuffings and are all worth a try.

  • Bread Roll – These are your classic potato stuffed rolls of bread, which are not batter coated, but fried just as they ate till perfectly golden. To enjoy the true flavor and texture, sprinkle some chaat masala on these hot rolls and serve immediately.
  • Paneer Bread Roll – This is basically a spiced crumbled paneer or cottage cheese stuffing, rolled in bread slices and baked primarily. But if you don’t have an oven, toast these on the pan itself. Gets easily veganized when you replace the paneer with tofu in it.
  • Bread Cutlet – Spiced mixed veggies mixed with bread, shaped into cutlets or tikkis, crumb-coated and shallow fried in hot oil till crisp and golden brown. Serves as an amazing snack for both kids and adults.
  • Cheese Roll – These bread rolls have a cheesy spiced potato stuffing, and are again baked instead of being fried. A healthier, but an absolutely smashing on the palate choice loved by all.
